Research Interests

Wireless Systems

The rapid growth and the proliferation of wireless networks and systems has led to more users using their wireless devices to do the tasks that were done by wired devices (e.g., banking, finance, etc.). A key problem in current wireless systems is their lack of dependability for such critical applications as compared to their wired counterparts. My research interests includes the exploration of strategies for enhancing the dependability and the security of wireless systems, so that wireless applications can tolerate infrastructural failures.

Signal/Video Compression

Transmitting entertainment quality video over the Internet still remains a challenging task due to the high bit-rates required for transmitting video data and also due to the presence of bit-errors, packet losses, delays and jitter. My prior experience includes the standardization of a new video compression standard H.264/AVC (advanced video coding) that provides significantly better compression efficiency than the existing video compression standards. My research interests include the development of joint source and channel coding algorithms for transmitting H.264-compressed bitstreams over unreliable communication media.
