    Research Areas
     Communication theory, information theory, and their applications to wireless communication focusing on the interplay of communication systems and networks; including network coding, user cooperation, spectrum sharing, and opportunistic access. Signal processing, information processing, and their applications to neuro-engineering focusing on the real-time stabilization of neuronal disorders such as epilepsy, Parkinson, tremors, depression, and obesity.
     

    Statement:

     


    Within the last five years, there has been a cultural shift from wired landlocked connectivity to pervasive wireless information access. Most emerging mobile devices are now equipped with some form of embedded wireless radio. The expectations of high data rates and increased battery longevity have put tremendous pressure on all aspects of wireless system design. To meet the challenges of next generation wireless system design, we need fundamentally new methods to exploit all available dimensions of communication channels and network. In our research program at Rice we have focused on systems and network level techniques to increase spectral and power efficiency of communication systems, and extend coverage of wireless networks. The cooperative communication paradigm pools distributed resources of different nodes, such that the nodes act like a collaborative system instead of greedy adversarial participants. We have a five year research and development plans develop and build a scalable experimental wireless system for mobile broadband Internet.
