Research Interests

Prof. Kadota’s research has two intertwined goals: (i) develop theory and models that capture the fundamental limits and trade-offs of next-generation communication networks; and (ii) contribute to the design and implementation of the networks that will bring to reality emerging applications such as the Internet-of-Things, Smart-City Intersections, and Shared Augmented Reality.

To that end, his research leverages: (i) Rigorous Theory, e.g., development of network control algorithms with performance guarantees using tool such as Lyapunov optimization, renewal theory, and multi-armed bandits. (ii) System Implementation, e.g., FPGA-based implementation of a real-time algorithm that adaptively configures an integrated circuit which enables full-duplex wireless. (iii) Machine Learning Applications, e.g., development of a CNN-based pipeline that uses data collected from a millimeter-wave radar to opportunistically sense atmospheric phenomena.
