"Methods of Blind Signal Separation" by Derek Gordon with Professor and Chair Athina Petropulu
My research is in the field of blind signal separation (BSS), the goal of which is to recover a broadcasted signal after it has been altered by its environment, with limited knowledge of how the environment affects the signal. The methods of BSS can be applied to many forms of communication, including sounds and images.
My project involves the development of methods of BSS. I program simulations to test the effectiveness of a particular algorithm, and then refine it as I gather more information about how signals are altered and come across new mathematical tools.
