Research Overview

Hassibi's research is in communications, information theory, signal processing, and control. He is currently most interested in various information-theoretic and algorithmic aspects of wireless communications, especially wireless networks. Other interests include adaptive signal processing and neural networks; blind channel equalization; statistical signal processing; robust estimation and control, especially connections between robustness and adaptation; and linear algebra, with emphasis on fast algorithms, random matrices and group representation theory.
