Current research interests

  • She is interested in signal processing, multiuser information and communications theory for wireless networks.
  • More specifically, her work is focused on the fundamental limits and design criteria of large wireless systems by making use of random matrix theory and free probability.
  • Resource allocation with cooperative and opportunistic schemes and crosslayer design, eventually based on game theory, ad-hoc networks are also primary research interests.

Current research memberships
