About Me

I am currently a second year PhD student under Dr. Jose C. Principe.
 
My Research Interests

I am interested in signal processing, in particular, algorithm development, adaptive signal processing and neural networks. I am also interested in applying signal processing concepts and algorithms to build efficient and robust CDMA/ wireless receivers. Fascinated by analog circuits, in the near future, I wish to design low power analog chips to implement some of the algorithms I have researched on.

Research Goals

I will list my summer research goals for now.

1. Investigating new architectures for brain-machine interfaces to tackle problems with sparse binary-like data.

2. Literature review of existing analog implementations of neural network algorithms

3. Efficient applications of subspace techniques in wireless communications
