Research in the information theory group spans a range of topics including channel coding, compression, and statistical inference. We are interested in understanding the information-theoretic limits of problems in communications, statistics, and signal processing, as well as designing efficient codes and algorithms for these problems. Applications for our work include wireless communication, inference in networks, high-density data storage, and file synchronization.


Some of the current projects in the group:

  1. Message passing algorithms for high-dimensional inference
  2. Low-complexity codes for compression and communication via sparse regression
  3. Algorithms for synchronization from insertions and deletions
  4. Coding for DNA storage
  5. New techniques for iterative decoding
