My research interests focus on deep learning for communications, channel coding and in particular the combination of both. In the recent years, the application of deep neural networks in digital communication systems has been a hot topic. While it has been successful to exchange or support individual components of a system with deep learning, it remains an open problem to build a complete transmitter-receiver-pair based on neural networks that achieves state-of-the-art performance. I believe that a solution has to be approached in small steps, therefore I look into the joint optimization of several system components.

Moreover, a particulary appealing topic for me is deep learning based channel coding. I find the idea of extending the black box approach of Deep Learning to a field that relies so heavily on a mathematical backbone and the ingenuity of humans especially interesting. 


My current research interests are:

  • Combining deep learning based components of a digital communication system and joint optimization
  • Deep learning based channel codes
