SU Communication Lab

The Communication Laboratory in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of Syracuse University is a research group with a primary focus on statistical signal processing, communication and information theory. Major applications that are of current interest include:

  • Decentralized inference and information fusion
  • Interference channels
  • MIMO communication with airborne platforms
  • Software radio design

Research Assistant Positions

We are looking for Ph.D. students in 1) statistical inference; and 2) wireless communications. Motivated candidates with strong mathematical background are encouraged to send in their CV and transcripts to Note that due to the large volume of emails, only inquiries that deemed promising will get a response.
