Research Abstract
I am interested in communication theory, with an emphasis on coding.


I am currently concentrating on the theoretical and practical challenges of designing systems that use multiple antennas. One of these challenges is to manage the tradeoff between diversity and rate from an information theory perspective. Another is to design practical coding schemes that satisfy those limits using signal-processing methods.


I also have been involved in developing data compression algorithms especially for image and video coding. My recent work in this field concerns the transmission of multimedia information over wireless networks and the Internet. I am interested in developing new coding schemes and network protocols that improve end-to-end recovery and enhance the quality of service for video.
