Research

Our research objectives include adaptive wireless networks in highly dynamic scenarios by taking advantage of sub-6 GHz and mmWave communications with applications in vehicular networks and ad hoc sensor networks. A main focus of our work is the design and development of architectures and network protocols for efficient and resilient communication in wireless networks with applications in IoT (Internet of Things) and inter-vehicular communication incorporating probabilistic data structures.
