Hundreds of students, staff and faculty on campus have been working together on ways to de-stress classes and other learning environments to help students learn better. The UT Well-Being in Learning Environments Project has produced resources for students, resources for instructors, and a short video. Instructors include faculty members and teaching assistants. The project is coordinated by the UT Counseling and Mental Health Center. In addition, The UT Graduate School has developed a Resource Guide to Mental Health Services for Graduate Students.

My research and teaching interests are in the processing of signals to increase connection speeds and reliability in communication systems and improve visual quality of video and still images. For my research, I was elevated to IEEE Fellow "for contributions to multicarrier communications and image display" (news release). For my teaching, I received the University's Texas Exes Teaching Award sponsored by the alumni association. I currently hold the Engineering Foundation Professorship.

Currently, my research group is conducting research on 5G/6G cellular communications systems. In particular, we're focusing on improving millimeter wave systems for deployment in the field. Traditional multi-antenna approaches would consume too much power to be practical. We're investigating mixed analog/digital signal processing basestation architectures to reduce power consumption by 10-100x, and developing algorithms to maximize the communication performance of those architectures. We're also investigating machine learning approaches to improve 4G/5G handover, 5G basestation coordination, and 5G network fault remediation, when using millimeter wave bands. My research group is the Embedded Signal Processing Laboratory.

Open courseware for the Real-Time Digital Signal Processing Laboratory Course in Spring 2014.

Recent awards received by students and alumni of our research group.

Notes for prospective undergraduate students: Videos about studying engineering entitled "Engineering is Amazing", "Engineering, Creating What Was Once Only Imaginable" and "Engineering is Incredible", selected from the winners of the 2014 video contest by the US National Academy of Engineering. Please consider applying for undergraduate ECE studies. Also, here is a short video presentation of Sound Shield, an intelligent system to transform distracting outside noise into the soothing sounds of nature inside your home by a UT Austin Senior Design Project Team in spring 2016.

My university service has included many aspects of faculty governance and due process:
