Introduction

Dr. Aveek Dutta is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Engineering at University at Albany. He comes to us from his previous position as an Assistant Professor at the University of Kansas in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science; Prior to that, he was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Princeton University. His research lies at the crossroads of communication theory, networked systems and radio architectures including modern wireless and cognitive radio networks.

Education

Ph.D., Electrical Engineering, University of Colorado Boulder, 2013

Master of Science, Electrical Engineering, University of Colorado Boulder, 2008

Bachelor of Technology (Hons.), Electronics and Telecommunication, Kalyani University (Institute of Engineering and Management), First Class Distinction, 2002

Research Interests

Dr. Dutta’s research lies at the crossroads of communication theory, networked systems and radio architectures that spans from novel MAC-PHY cross-layer solutions in modern wireless networks to cognitive radio networks. His research has produced fast and efficient MAC layer protocols by incorporating various signal processing subsystems of OFDM based physical layers. He has deep experience in architecting and designing flexible radio platforms for research and has worked on knowledge representation methods for complex physical layers in cognitive radio networks. Currently, he focuses on solutions, driven by devices at the network edge to make the wireless channel robust against interference, while addressing the challenge of being always best-connected over heterogeneous networks. His solutions employ a hybrid method of theoretical rigor and experimental evaluation using prototype hardware and wireless measurements.
