Research:

 

Dr. Sidiropoulos’ research interests are in signal processing for communications, convex optimization, cross-layer resource allocation for wireless networks, and multiway analysis - i.e., linear algebra for data arrays indexed by three or more variables. His current research focuses primarily on signal and tensor analytics, with applications in cognitive radio, big data, and preference measurement. As a sidekick, he is developing optimization algorithms for conference review and session assignment.
