I have studied the statistical characterization of the underwater acoustic channel and its impact on communication systems and networking protocols. In particular, I have been focusing on the problem of reliability in time-varying UWA channel conditions, which lead me to the performance evaluation of adaptive communication techniques, such as AMC and HARQ, in the UWA context.
At the moment, I am interested in designing transmission policies which result in both energy efficient and reliable communications. The research also aims at defining guidelines for sustainable underwater acoustic communications, which therefore minimally interfere with the surranding ecosystem.
