Communication and protocol design for pervasive and cognitive networks
The main research topics are:
Distributed cooperative algorithms
for processing, communications and positioning (including cooperative wireless networks, network coding, distributed source coding, positioning algorithms based on heterogeneous sensing).
Wideband and cognitive wireless networks
(includes UWB, techniques for adaptive and agile radio, advanced multi-domain resource management)
Advanced characterization of protocol stacks
for supporting advanced PBD design with support of heterogeneous network paradigms (it includes WSN, NFC and RFiD, cellular, local and broadband access systems, MANETs).
Security paradigms at various levels, especially in the lower network tiers.
