About me

Welcome to my web page!

I am Kenneth and come from Ecuador, South America. I was born in a city called Guayaquil, and grew up in beautiful Cuenca. I am currently pursuing my Ph.D at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) under the supervision of Professor Natasha Devroye. I work in the field of Information Theory, which I find very interesting and challenging. It involves lots of imagination and mathematics. I like to work on complicated problems and to learn new stuff. My current work focuses on error exponents of two-way communication channels.

  • Jun 2019: Professor Daniela Tuninetti from the NICEST LAB, will be giving a talk for the “Emerging Technology Speaker Series - Motorola Mobility LLC” organized by IEEE Chicago Chapter. Event details can be found here.

  • Mar 2019: Our papers: “Error Exponents of Parallel Two-way Discrete Memoryless Channels using Variable Length Coding” and “Variable-length Coding Error Exponents with Noisy Feedback for the AWGN Channel at Zero-Rate”, have been accepted to be presented in the 2019 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory (ISIT), to be held in Paris, France, this summer.

  • Mar 2018: Our papers: “A Relaying Graph and Special Strong Product for Zero-error Problems in Primitive Relay Channels” and “On Two-way AWGN Channel Error Exponents at Zero Rate”, have been accepted to the 2018 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory (ISIT), to be held in Vail Colorado, USA.

  • Spring semester 2017: I passed my Qualifying Examination in the areas of Signal Processing and Communications.

  • Fall semester 2016: I have started my Ph.D, so excited to come back to UIC and to Chicago. I'm very happy I will be working under the supervision of Professor Natasha Devroye.
