Research Interests

My research in the past few years has focused on providing signal representation tools to be used primarily in communication and biomedical systems. I developed a toolbox containing an extensive list of tools with structure. The structure is what distinguishes various classes of tools. These can be multiresolution, multidimensional, wavelet-type, etc. For a problem at hand, one chooses an appropriate tool. See my home page for more details.
