Dr. Shaoen Wu, State Farm Endowed Chair Professor in the School of Information Technology, has received a two-year, $235,521 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for research related to In-band full-duplex (IBFD) wireless communication technique.

The grant period ends in October 2022 and supports research that can potentially double the wireless spectrum efficiency and impact future wireless standards and policies. IBFD has tremendous potential in spectral efficiency because of its simultaneous transmission and reception of information.

Although IBFD wireless communication technique has been theoretically investigated and analyzed for years, it remains very challenging to be systemically enabled in practice because of a few hurdles. This project will design and develop deep learning resolutions of self-interference cancellation, power control, and security for future IBFD wireless communication systems.

This project will integrate the research outcomes into course curricula to promote training a workforce with the knowledge and skills in deep learning and future wireless system design. Undergraduate students will also have opportunities to work on the cutting-edge research with faculty mentors.
