Students Advised

This website is always under construction!!

Two research assistantship openings are immediately available in Fall 2022 in Dr. Shuangqing Wei’s research group in the Division of ECE of the School of EECS at LSU. The students will work on a project developing and implementing neural network-based algorithms to handle distortion and interference in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite communication (SATCOM) systems. Candidates are expected to be equipped with strong background in at least one of the following areas: digital communications, optimization, statistical inference and machine learning, FPGA implementation, as well as proficient programming skills in Matlab or Python. There will be summer internship opportunities during the project where students work with a local high-tech company in Baton Rouge. Please contact Dr. Wei if you are interested in conducting cutting-edge research in this project.
