Welcome to the Information theory and systems laboratory at UCLA!
Broadly our research can be described as the understanding of the fundamentals of information: learning, security/privacy, communication, processing, and storage. Towards these broad goals, our research is in Information theory with applications to learning, cyber-physical systems, security & privacy, bio-informatics, wireless networks, epidemics, and neuroscience.
