  • Sustainable Internet of Things

  • The Internet of Things (IoT) allows users to gather data from the physical environment. New information and communication technology makes the IoT scalable and reliable to support the emerging demand for smart cities, active health, and connected cars. Our research focuses on energy-efficient communications and networking, device energy harvesting, and security and trustworthiness of the IoT.
  • Deep Learning

  • Deep neural networks use algorithms, big data, and the computational power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) to allow machines learn at speed, accuracy, and scale that drive artificial intelligence. Our research uses deep learning to help solve big-data problems in e-health and life science applications.
