​​The Communication Theory Lab (CTL) at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) looks into the modeling, design, optimization, and performance analysis of wireless communication systems with general research interests including the design and performance analysis of diversity combining techniques, MIMO techniques, multi-hop/cooperative communications systems, optical wireless communication systems, cognitive radio systems, green communication systems and networks, and integrated ground-airborne-space networks. The CTL is currently particularly interested in  addressing the uneven global distribution, access to, and use of information and communication technologies by studying and developing new generations of aerial and space networks as a solution to provide connectivity to far-flung, less-populated, and/or hard-to-reach areas.
