Research Areas

The ICI group’s research focus is on core topics on wireless communications, information theory, signal processing and MAC / network slicing. Current research topics are pertinent to IoT verticals (with emphasis on V2X and Smart factories) and lie primarily on the following domains:

o   – Wireless comms / PHY aspects: resource allocation and optimization, low energy (green AI, energy harvesting), low latency (short packet comms, finite blocklength, effective capacity and delay QoS), localization for mmWave and subTHz, waveform design, ML for communications;

o   – Coding and information theory: rate-adaptable codes for IoT, short blockelength code design, graph / polar / lattices codes, etc., interplay between information theory and game theory;

o   – Networking slicing and caching, including: slicing, coding in Named Data Networks, layer 2 scheduling, energy efficient protocols, coexistence of heterogeneous services;

o   – Security for wireless communications including: physical layer security, jamming and active attacks at RAN, cross-layer anomaly detection, physical unclonable functions, lattice based cryptography, privacy.
