The SINE Lab is directed by Prof. Hany Elgala at the State University of New York at Albany. Our research focus is on Wireless and Mobile Networks, Digital Signal Processing and Embedded Systems. The main research direction is to understand the principles of communication signals and propagation channels to engineer a practical infrastructure for the future 5G networks, Internet-of-Things (IoT) deployments and cyber-physical systems (CPS) applications. We are particularly experts in Visible Light Communications (VLC) wireless transmission and LiFi (Light-Fidelity) networks and are interested in Wireless/Fiber-based Optical Communication, Millimeter-Wave Communication, Wireless Backscattering, Heterogeneous Networks, Physical Layer Security, Energy harvesting and Wireless Power Transfer.
Apr. 2018: For Fall 2018: We are actively looking for motivated BSc, MSc and PhD students to join the lab. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following: Heterogeneous networks, Smart city Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications, Embedded systems and applications, THz-communications, machine learning in wireless communication and backscatter communication. If you are interested, please email your CV.
