University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa
Research at the University of Hawaiʻi covers theory and practical topics in information theory, statistical learning and signal processing. In particular, a lot of focus is on high dimensional problems, reflecting requirements for diverse applications in data processing, handling biological and genetic data, risk management, channels with memory, and smart grids among others.
Researchers gravitate toward solutions that involve nice combinatorics or probabilistic arguments where possible. During the course of obtaining engineering and statistically relevant solutions, researchers use results and insights from number theory, combinatorics, and topology to name a few seemingly uncommon subject areas.
