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, networking 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 networks and are interested in Optical Communication, Millimeter-Wave/THz Communication, Wireless Backscattering, Heterogeneous Networks, Physical Layer Security, Energy harvesting and Wireless Power Transfer.
Oct. 2018: For Spring 2019: 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: VLC/LiFi, machine learning in communications, backscatter communication, heterogeneous networks, and embedded systems and IoT applications. If you are interested, please email your CV.
