Research Area

Wireless communications

Our team’s research in this area focuses mainly on the physical (PHY) and medium access control (MAC) layers of wireless communication systems. Topics include modulation, coding, fading mitigation and channel phase compensation, multiple access, improved spectral efficiency techniques, MIMO and RF technologies for wireless systems.

Wireless communications systems permit individuals to be “connected” regardless of their physical location. Research done in this area can be applied to cellular networks, wireless sensor networks (WSNs), wireless local area networks (WLAN), etc.
