Information Theory and Communications

We focus on fundamental aspects of information acquisition, processing, security, privacy, storage, and communication. We are interested in problems arising in broad range of applications, such as wireless and wireline communication systems,  heterogeneous and ad-hoc networks, peer-to-peer systems, photonics channels, big data, and smart grid. Active research topics include: multi-terminal and network information theory, compression, coding, capacity regions and bounds, novel security paradigms, privacy, statistical inference, classification, approximation approaches, energy-vs-performance tradeoffs, and dynamics of information flow.
