Multimedia Communications Laboratory

The Multimedia Communications Laboratory (MCL) is affiliated with the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Texas at Dallas. The central theme of our research is the application of information theory and coding theory to various challenges in the fields of communication and signal processing. Lately our research has concentrated on the areas of wireless networks (relay and cooperative networks) and medical imaging (functional magnetic resonance imaging, or fMRI). Interestingly, certain tools and insights from statistics and information theory are applicable to both these areas. We invite you to read about some of our past research projects below. If you are interesting in joining MCL for your PhD studies, please follow this link for more information.

Research Assistantships are available on an intermittent basis for highly qualified applicants. Please follow the link for more information.
