Research

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.

Projects

Spatially Embedded Networks (EPSRC)
"Spatially Embedded Networks is an EPSRC-funded project aimed at creating new analytical techniques and models for graphs embedded within a bounding geometry. The project is closely linked to the exciting and rapidly evolving ICT domain of wireless networks, and as such will be informed by and aimed at industrial applications related to the Internet of Things, inter-vehicular networks, next-generation Wi-Fi and 5G systems."
NQIT - Networked Quantum Information Technologies (EPSRC)
"The NQIT Hub, part of the UK National Quantum Technology Programme, is led by the University of Oxford and involves 29 globally leading quantum centres and major companies, all working together to realise an entirely new technology sector. The Hub's focus is on systems that can connect together to form flexible, scalable solutions for diverse applications. These powerful principles of flexibility and scalability have caused the network to become the single most important concept in modern information technology, with incalculable beneficial impacts on society."
DIWINE - Dense Cooperative Wireless Cloud Network (FP7)
"DIWINE considers wireless communication in a dense relay / node scenario where WNC (Wireless Network Coding) messages are flooded via dense massively air-interacting nodes in the self-contained cloud while the PHY air-interface between the terminals (sources / destinations) and the cloud is simple and uniform. A complex infrastructure cloud creates an equivalent air-interface to the terminal, which is as simple as possible. Source and destination air-interfaces are completely blind to the cloud network structure. The cloud has its own self-contained organising and processing capability."
