Jafarkhani, Hamid


B.S., electronics, Tehran University,  1989;
M.S. and Ph.D., electrical engineering, University of Maryland at College Park, 1994, 1997


Communication theory with emphases on coding, wireless communications, and wireless networks.

Jafarkhani works on the theoretical and practical challenges of designing systems and networks that use multiple antennas. He also looks at optimizing resources across different layers of a wireless network, with particular interest in cross-layer adaptation, network connectivity, and power-aware wireless network protocols especially for networks with multiple-antenna nodes.

He is also involved in developing data compression algorithms especially for image and video coding, specifically the transmission of multimedia information over wireless networks and the Internet.
