Information, Systems and Networking

Our research and courses focus on fundamental aspects of information acquisition, processing, security, privacy, storage, and communication.

We are interested in problems arising in a broad range of applications, such as wireless and wireline communication systems, cellular systems and WiFi, heterogeneous and ad-hoc networks, peer-to-peer systems, big data, and the smart grid. Through our research and courses, students will learn how data is communicated in the presence of interference. Our students will learn powerful technologies for compressing and protecting data, as well as techniques for efficiently routing data in wired and wireless systems. Finally, they will see how our critical infrastructure, from cellular to the smart grid, are complex information systems that hold the promise for a wide variety of applications.
