Prior to joining the faculty at UC Riverside, Dr. Tuncel did postgraduate research at UC Santa Barbara, where he worked on various distributed source coding problems and content-based retrieval in multimedia databases. His current focus is on distributed source coding in sensor networks with emphasis on low-delay communication, multi-terminal joint source-channel coding, content-based retrieval from high-dimensional databases and fundamental limits of retrieval performance.
