Aveek Dutta

Dr. Aveek Dutta is an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University at Albany and a Co-Director of the Mobile Emerging Systems and Application (MESA) Lab. 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. 


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 interests include vehicular networking, enforcement methods for spectrum policies, blockchain for networking applications, and hardware architecture for Cloud Radio Access 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.
