Communications and Signal Processing

Research in communications focuses on the transmission and reception of information through various media such as wired cables, over-the-air and underwater wireless means.  Topics in communications research include wireless communication systems, information theory, network theory, information privacy and network security.  

Research in signal processing covers the generation, transformation, and interpretation of signals containing information. Research topics include video/image/speech signal processing, object detection and classification, parameter estimation, machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI), distributed and adaptive signal processing, optimization theory, etc. 

The faculty members in the CSP group are engaged in cutting edge research with applications in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), Underwater Internet of Things (U-IoT), MIMO radar and image fusion, information security and privacy in networks, robotics, smart energy distribution networks, and machine learning for edge computing networks.
