Coronavirus. Please visit the UT Web site on Guidance Related to the Coronavirus Disease.

Extended Spring Break. UT has extended its Spring Break by one week until March 29th.

Wellness. Hundreds of UT students, staff and faculty have been working together on ways to destress classes and other environments to help students learn better. The Well-Being in Learning Environments Project has produced resources for students, resources for instructors, and a video. The project is coordinated by the Counseling and Mental Health Center. The Graduate School has developed a Resource Guide to Mental Health Services for Graduate Students.

Shared Governance. I am serving as Chair/President of the University Faculty Council (Academic Senate). Faculty Council discusses, evaluates, monitors, and recommends to the President and Provost on all university undergraduate curricular changes and degree programs, and on a wide array of university policies and procedures. The latter include faculty evaluation, workload, compensation, academic freedom, and grievances; student services, activities, admissions, and employment; and libraries, research, and IT. I've compiled and curated feedback from faculty and staff members about issues facing the campus. On January 27th, Faculty Council launched a Task Force on Developing Community Standards for Faculty in response to concerns from students, staff, faculty, and administrators. Please let me know your ideas on how to make UT Austin a better place to live, work, and study during my Tuesday 12-2pm coffee hours at Caffe Medici (2222B Guadalupe St.) or by sending e-mail to me at bevans@ece.utexas.edu.

Research and Teaching Interests. My research and teaching interests are to make cellular communication systems faster and more reliable, and improve visual quality when taking and displaying pictures and video. For my research, I was elevated to IEEE Fellow in 2009 (news release) and received several best/top paper awards. For my teaching, I received a Texas Exes Teaching Award and several other teaching awards. I currently hold the Engineering Foundation Professorship.

Research Group. Our group is researching multiantenna systems to improve 5G/6G cellular communications over millimeter wave bands. We're investigating mixed analog/digital signal processing basestation architectures for millimeter wave bands to reduce power consumption by 1000x and maximize the resulting communication performance. We're also investigating machine learning to improve 4G/5G band switching, 5G basestation coordination, and 5G network fault remediation. Here are the most recent journal paper, conference paper, software releases, PhD dissertation, and awards by members of our research group.
