Research Interests

My research interests lie broadly in information theory and its interactions with other fields. Information theory—the mathematical description of information and its utilization—plays an increasingly fundamental role in numerous areas of applied mathematics and science. I am particularly fascinated by the development of information-theoretic principles and methods that explain the common structure in a variety of applied mathematical problems.

Recent research focus has been on: 

  1. PuceShannon Theory

  2. PuceInformation Theory and Statistics

  3. PuceDeep Learning and Distributed Representations

  4. PuceCommunication Mechanisms for Security and Privacy

  5. PuceInformation Theory and Stochastic Geometry

Pablo Piantanida received both B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering and Mathematics, and M.Sc degrees from the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina) in 2003, and the Ph.D. from Université Paris-Sud (Orsay, France) in 2007. Since October 2007 he has joined the Laboratoire des Signaux et Systèmes (L2S), at CentraleSupélec together with CNRS (UMR 8506) and Université Paris-Sud, as an Associate Professor of Network Information Theory. He is an IEEE Senior Member, and coordinator of the Information Theory and its Applications group (ITA) at L2S and General Co-Chair of the 2019 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory (ISIT).
