My primary research interest and expertise lie in the areas of information sciences and statistical signal processing. Particularly, I have engaged in research fronts across the interconnected disciplines of signal and information processing, wireless communications, and stochastic control driven by numerous applications including wireless sensor networks, spectrum-agile radios and more recently surveillance and reconnaissance, and compressive sensing. These are exploding areas of research today considering the contemporary issues of energy efficiency, homeland security and counter-terrorism, dynamic spectrum sharing, and distributed information processing.
