Thomas Chapman is currently working within the radio access and standardization team within the Systems and Technology group at Ericsson, focusing on future advanced antenna technologies. He has been contributing into 3GPP standardisation since 2000 contributing to the whole portfolio of 3GPP technologies including UTRA TDD, WCDMA, HSPA and LTE, and has been deeply involved in concept evaluation and standardization of HSPA during the whole lifetime of the specification. His previous positions include chief architect within the HSPA concept development team at NSN, research and development engineer within Siemens and research fellow at Lancaster University in the UK. He received his PhD in 2000 from the University of Manchester, UK.
Erik Larsson joined Ericsson in 2005. He is currently a researcher at Systems and Technology working with concept development and network performance for NR with a focus on advanced antenna systems. He holds both an M.Sc. in engineering physics and a Ph.D. in electrical engineering, specializing in signal processing, from Uppsala University, Sweden.
