Communications and Signal Processing

Close up of signals on oscilloscope


Our research deals with various aspects of information representation, transmission, processing, and understanding. Collectively, we develop novel theories, tools, algorithms, and systems for solving real-world problems including parallel computing, cognitive networks, coding theory, and eco‑informatics. Our core strength includes channel coding and network coding theories, video compression and transmission, probabilistic modeling and reasoning, MIMO systems and wireless cognitive networks, stochastic systems and statistical signal processing.

Our application area spans a broad range of industries from computing and entertainment to health and environmental monitoring. For example, researchers in our group are actively working on future massive distributed system for storage and delivery of videos over the Internet, wireless cognitive networks, limited magnitude error correcting codes for use in flash memories, system for automatic acquisition and classification of bird species via bird recordings, high-precision 3-dimensional localization using ultra-wide band signal for manufacturing and health care industries.
