El Gamal research group applies tools from information theory, statistical signal processing, and circuit design to establish performance limits and develop architectures and algorithms motivated by emerging networking and integrated circuit technologies. The group's activities range from purely theoretical investigations to experimental and highly applied research. On the theoretical side the group has played a key role in the development of network information theory and communication complexity. On the applied side, the group has played pioneering roles in the development of Mask and Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) and CMOS image sensors. Ideas and technologies developed by the group have had significant impact on the semiconductor and EDA industries.

The group is currently involved in the general areas of imaging, network information theory, and FPGA architectures.
