The Wireless Networks (WiNE) Research group pioneers the research and development of technologies that improve the way devices sense and communicate. These technologies are present in our lives, through smart phones, home networks, vehicles, and connected appliances. They are also present in our ecosystems and habitat, in cities, roads and large infrastructures by providing seamless connectivity and sensing capabilities to gather information, actuate, monitor and control their operation. Also, in industries, instrumented with new generations of wireless technologies and low power sensors and actuators, where their operative information is used to improve processes and reduce operation costs while increasing sustainability and efficiency. Our primary interest is in helping industries, cities, infrastructure operators and people to benefit from Internet enabled cyber physical objects and contribute to a more sustainable Internet of Things by optimizing aspects of their operation and underlying technology.

What We’re Looking For:

Students with skills in computer networks, wireless communications and signal processing, machine learning and optimization, sensor and hardware design. Applicants will benefit of working with a multidisciplinary team on applied research topics and should have a strong desire to build technologies to make the world more sustainable.
