Dr Coon and his group study a broad range of theories and technologies related to information and communication. Topics include cooperative wireless network analysis and design, bounded random geometric graphs, novel modulation techniques, forward error correction for storage devices and networked quantum sensors. Dr Coon's group sits within the larger Oxford Communications Research Group. Prospective students interested in graph entropy, network theory, molecular communication, digital/wireless communication, coding for memory, and quantum information/estimation are encouraged to make contact.
