Research Areas

Today’s wireless systems are a far cry from the voice-centric communication systems developed in the first generation. Nowadays, wireless communication finds applications in various facets of our society including education, trade, banking, healthcare, transportation, military, industrial automation, and so on. In order to meet the diverse quality-of-service (QoS) requirements of these varying use cases, there is an ever-growing need for novel wireless technologies. At CoSiNC, we are interested in developing advanced signal processing techniques at the physical (PHY) and medium access (MAC) layer, and cross-layer design/optimization for networking adaptivity and QoS control. Some of the research areas that we are currently pursuing are listed below:

1. Waveform and PHY layer design
2. Cognitive Radio and Software Defined Radio
3. Digital baseband signal processing algorithm development for future wireless communication systems
4. Testing, Measurement, and Modeling
5. Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning Applications in Wireless Communications
6. Integrated Sensing and Communication
7. PHY / Cross-Layer Security
8. Multiple accessing, scheduling, and radio resource management (RRM)
9. Non-Terrestrial Networks (NTNs)
10. Interference Management
11. Multi-antenna systems (MIMO, RIS, CoMP)
12. Millimeter-wave/Terahertz (THz) frequency bands
