Vahid Tarokh
Rhodes Family Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering

A pioneer in communications and signal processing, Vahid Tarokh helped invent the space-time codes that provide signal redundancy during data transmission and are now used in most cellular phones, and also developed foundational approaches to cognitive radios and distributed communication techniques that are currently being deployed for sharing valuable spectral resources. Dr. Tarokh’s research has since evolved to pursuing new formulations and approaches to getting the most out of datasets. Current projects are focused on representation, modeling, inference and prediction from data such as determining how different people will respond to exposure to certain viruses, predicting rare events from small amounts of data, formulation and calculation of limits of learning from observations, and privacy and security for the Internet of Things.
