Peter Mathys’ research focuses on modern electronic communication systems and their applications. Software defined radios are the key to implementing such systems for teaching, research, and practical applications. Two specific applications that we are working on are the wireless transmission of sensor data from the brain to better understand its functions and the intelligent dynamic use of the radio spectrum (which is a finite natural resource) to accommodate general wireless communications from cell phones, computers, etc. An emerging field of interest is the combination of signal processing, communications, and machine learning to produce adaptive and intelligent communication devices.
