Research Group on Communication Networks

Activities of the group are at the junction of networking and communication theories. The products are algorithms as well as theorems about the flow of information across modern networks, especially ones that involve wireless links. We are also very interested in the implementation of these solutions and believe that practical issues encountered in implementation are useful for selecting the right set of aspects to model in our abstract problem formulations. Some problems of current interest are :

  1. Bounds and algorithms toward energy efficient wireless communication systems: packet scheduling mechanisms for energy harvesting systems.
  2. Efficient ad-hoc wireless networking: optimization of routing, and medium access.
  3. Resource allocation and scheduling for multiuser queues sharing wireless links (such as MIMO Broadcast and OFDMA)
  4. Implementation examples: Wireless Sensor Networks, practical Lazy Scheduling.
