Thesis Title: Spatially Coupled Sparse Regression Codes for Single- and Multi-user Communications [ online]

Supervisor: Dr Ramji Venkataramanan

Background

I obtained my BA and MEng at the University of Cambridge.

My master's thesis was titled "Fast Iterative Aglorithms for Compressed Sensing".

Research

Information theory and coding.

  • Sparse regression codes with approximate message passing (AMP) decoding for communication over the (single-user) additive white Gaussian noise channel and the (multi-user) Gaussian multiple-access channel.
