Dr. Kishk's goal is to develop miniaturized antennas for smart phones that cover multiple frequency bands and can harvest solar energy to recharge batteries. He is also investigating how to produce affordable, anti-collision radars for vehicles and microwave sensors for biomedical applications in cancer detection.
End-user services (e.g., Multimedia and multiparty games, distance learning, video on demand) are the raison d’être of communications networks. The specification and validation of architectures for end-user services in communication networks is a major engineering challenge. The widest possible range of services needs to be engineered; all the phases of the life cycle (e.g., development, deployment, execution, usage and withdrawal) need to be addressed; and the specifics of the communications networks need to be taken into account. This research program focus on specification and validation of comprehensive architectures (e.g., concepts, principles, rules) for engineering end-user services in communications networks. The program draws on several disciplines (e.g., distributed systems, software engineering, networking) and deals with both conventional networks (e.g., 3G) and challenged networks (e.g., mobile ad hoc networks, wireless sensors and actuators networks).
In aircraft jet engines, the flow of hot combustion gases can damage internal components if their surfaces are not properly protected with a temperature-resistant coating. Moreau’s team develops diagnostics and modeling tools to improve coating materials and to tailor them for optimum performance in industrial applications. His work will improve energy efficiency and can boost economic growth in the aerospace sector.
