Research Areas

 

Our research focuses mainly on detection and estimation theory and its applications to wireless communications and localization problems. In particular, we are interested in the following areas:

  • Detection and Estimation
  • Wireless Localization
  • Visible Light Communications (VLC)
  • Mobile and Wireless Communications
  • Signal Processing
  • Cognitive Radio
  • Ultra-Wideband (UWB) Systems
