His current interest is on building fundamental understanding of and developing enabling technologies for the upcoming Fifth Generation (5G) wireless networks. To this end, he is currently working on research topics such cache-aided wireless networks, energy efficient communications, energy harvesting systems, and information theoretical secrecy. His general area of interest is on communications networking and stochastic optimization.
Dr. Gürbüz’s research is on designing network algorithms and protocols for bandwidth and/or energy efficient wireless networking towards 5G systems. In this context, her research interests include, but not limited to:
Medium Access Control (MAC), resource allocation and routing
Cross layer design
Video delivery and Quality of Service
Cooperative communications and networking
Full duplex wireless communications and networking
