Research in the Image Communications Lab at UCLA focuses on a broad range of multidisciplinary topics. At the highest level our work addresses information: how to acquire it, process it, and deliver it in an efficient and secure manner.
In addition to creating the next generation of information technology solutions, we are very engaged in contributing to the national dialog on the broader policy implications of our work.
We are performing research across multiple scales, ranging from the design of chips in which the circuit features are thousands of times smaller than a human hair, to methods for improving the performance of mobile phone networks that can span hundreds of square miles. Our work is multidisciplinary, drawing from mathematics, engineering, statistics, and linguistics.
Examples of current project areas include hardware cybersecurity, wireless communications, the development of international communications standards, advanced medical imaging methods, and technology policy.
