Information for prospective PhD students

If you are interested in signal and image processing and/or wireless communication, you have a strong mathematical background, and you are interested in developing algorithms and digital VLSI circuits and systems, you might be a good fit for the VIP group. If you are already admitted to Cornell and are interested in one of my research areas, feel free to contact me. In case you are applying to Cornell and are interested in joining my research group, clearly mention this in your application. In case you want to increase the chances of me looking at your application, send me an e-mail that states why you want to join my group and why I should be interested in working with you. Also, ensure that the subject of your e-mail reads "Prospective VIP student." All other application e-mails will be ignored.
