Ulukus Earns NSF CAREER Award for Wireless Network Research
ECE Assistant Professor Sennur Ulukus has won a National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award for her research, "A Network Information Theoretic Approach to Wireless Ad-hoc and Sensor Networks." The research will investigate the capacity regions and capacity achieving transmit/receive coding/decoding schemes of basic network structures that are building blocks of general ad-hoc multi-hop wireless networks, with an emphasis on the interference channel. It will develop principles of communicating correlated and common data.
The NSF CAREER program fosters the career development of outstanding junior faculty, combining the support of research and education of the highest quality and in the broadest sense.
