Professor Fuja’s research addresses reliable communication over inherently unreliable and/or constrained communication links. He has recently focused his research on the changing role that channel codes play in the context of wireless networks, i.e., to not only provide physical-layer robustness but also to interact with relaying and network coding architectures to maximize efficiency and performance.

Elements of his current research include the design of capacity-approaching channel codes (e.g., LDPC and fountain codes) well-suited to wireless networks, techniques for cooperative diversity based on channel coding methodologies, the capacity of wireless erasure networks, and the design and analysis of iterative-decoded communication systems operating at very low bit and frame error rates.
