Our research focus is underwater communications and networking for mobile platforms. The aquatic environments, including the oceans, lakes, and rivers, are the basis for life. The next research frontier is to use fleets of aquatic robots, both autonomous surface vehicles and autonomous underwater vehicles, to perform adaptive sampling in aquatic environments. Underwater wireless communications and networking are the enabling technologies for distributed adaptive aquatic sampling. Collaborating with multiple institutions such as Georgia Tech, University of Houston, Michigan Tech, we are performing interdisciplinary research to advance sciences and technologies at the intersections of underwater wireless communications, sensor networking, and marine robotics.
