Computing, Caching and Communication Group

Openings

We have at least 2 PhD openings for Fall 2023 working in the general area of machine learning, wireless communications and networking, distributed/edge computing, and information theory and coding. If you are interested, please send me an e-mail with your current CV or drop by my office. I will be happy to discuss. Please check samples of our research talks at YouTube.
