My research interests belong to the general area of information and communication theory. More specifically, I am interested in the coding of information-bearing signals for transmission over noisy communication channels. This problem is addressed at two levels: One objective is to understand and investigate the Shannon theoretic aspect of this problem -- i.e., to determine the fundamental limits of how efficiently one can encode information and still be able to recover it with negligible loss. Another vital objective is to develop new techniques that are appropriate for current and near-term developing technologies -- e.g., achieving reliable transmission of multimedia signals (text, data, speech/audio, image, and video) over wireless communication channels for the establishment of mobile communication systems. Current research activities can be divided into three areas:
Event Organizations and Committees
Communications and Signal Processing Lab
