Wireless Communications

Wireless Communications
Wireless communication enables people to communicate from anywhere to anywhere, at any time. Our research effort has been devoted to physical and multiple access layer designs for future systems, including massive antenna systems, advanced coding techniques and efficient signal processing algorithms. Our current focus is the 5th generation (5G) systems that are planned to meet the rapidly increasing demand for wireless communications.

Sparse Recovery and Related Problems

Sparse Recovery and Related Problems
Sparse recovery refers to extracting a high-dimensional vector with few non-zero entries from a small number of linear measurements, i.e., finding the sparse x from the observed b. In this research, we exploit non-convex optimization techniques to achieve better recovery performance. Other related problems include matrix / tensor completion and phase retrieval.

Large-Scale Distributed Antenna Systems

Large-Scale Distributed Antenna Systems
The distributed antenna system (DAS) has become a promising candidate for next-generation (5G) mobile communication systems. The appealing features of distributed antennas have attracted considerable attention from both industry and academia, and been applied to the cutting-edge technologies such as small cells and the Cloud Radio Access Network (C-RAN). Our research mainly focuses on modeling and performance analysis of large-scale DASs, including characterization of capacity scaling laws and optimal resource allocation.

Interference Analysis and Mitigation for Heterogeneous Networks

Interference Analysis and Mitigation for Heterogeneous Networks
Heterogeneous network with small cells is a promising approach to increase capacity manifold for the new generation of communications. However, the bandwidth sharing and densification of small cells caused co-tier and cross-tier interferences. This research is to analyze the statistical properties of interferences and mitigation methods in two-tier networks with multi-antenna over multipath fading channels.

Multiple Access and Interference Management in Wireless Networks

Multiple Access and Interference Management in Wireless Networks
Our research focuses on two major problems at the physical and medium access layers, namely, how to allocate resource among different users and how to mitigate interference caused by simultaneous signal transmissions. We approach and solve these problems by applied mathematics such as distributed algorithms, combinatorial analysis, and optimization theory.

Adaptive Communications

Adaptive Communications
Our research group is based on solving both theoretical and applied problems arising in communications and signal processing areas. These include feedback communication systems, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) transmission beamforming, array processing, closed-loop channel sounding and signal adaptation, and precoder/combiner optimization. We contribute by providing novel adaptive techniques. The fundamental tools whose use we advocate include non-linear optimization, measure theory, and statistical signal processing.
