Welcome to the Information and Data Sciences (IDS) research group of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) in Boston University.

Our group’s mission is research, education, and technology transfer in all areas related to the sensing, communication, and processing of information, encompassing an extensive range of natural and man-made phenomena, as well as the design and synthesis of secure networked systems for optimum decision-making and control.

The IDS group is an exciting and rewarding environment for faculty and students alike. Comprising a third of the ECE department, currently IDS is home to 16 dynamic faculty of international renown, several post-doctoral researchers, over 50 doctoral candidates, scores of master’s students as well as a number of undergraduates exploring state-of-the-art research outside their regular curriculum.
