Electrical Engineering Assistant Professor Alireza Vahid (second from right) and his team met for lunch at Tivoli Brewing Co. to start summer research. The team works on a wide range of research topics from deriving theoretical bounds on the performance of multi-user communication systems, to sequence assembly with application in DNA storage systems, and vehicular and space communications. Vahid lab has recently received three NSF grants as well as industry funding to continue their work on these topics. Dr. Vahid leads the Information and Communication Theory group at CU Denver’s EE department: www.alirezavahid.com
The current members of Dr. Vahid’s lab include Sajjad Nassirpour (PhD candidate in EE), Dr. Tiep M. Hoang (postdoctoral researcher), Dr. Dinh-Thuan Do (postdoctoral researcher), Dr. Michael Huntington (high school teacher working as part of an NSF RET award), and Judith Pacheco (high school intern). The team will continue to grow with the addition of a new postdoctoral researcher and a PhD student in the coming months.
At the CU Denver College of Engineering, Design and Computing, we focus on providing our students with a comprehensive engineering education at the undergraduate, graduate and professional level. Faculty conduct research that spans our five disciplines of civil, electrical and mechanical engineering, bioengineering, and computer science and engineering. The college collaborates with industry from around the state; our laboratories and research opportunities give students the hands-on experience they need to excel in the professional world.
