Dr. Shpak's interests are in the design and implementation of communications and digital signal processing systems.
These interests include IP and SONET networks, audio and
speech signal processing, and the development of optimization and transformation
methods for 1-D and 2-D digital filters and linear arrays.
He is also interested in simulation and code generation, real-time operating systems,
DSP and VLSI implementation for
audio and communication systems and some topics in array
He and his students have studied:
- Closed-form, Remez, quasi-Newton, least-Pth, weighted-least-squares, and transformation methods for the design of 1-D and 2-D digital filters and delay equalizers.
- Voice analysis, transformation, and pitch-shifting.
- Vocal pitch detection and classification.
- Audio signal processing.
- Real and complex Remez methods for linear array design.
- Adaptive filtering for HDSL and xDSL wire-line and CDMA wireless systems.
- Multiple antenna systems for CDMA.
- Design and implementation of area-efficient multiply-accumulators and other arithmetic units.
- IP networks and Quality of Service.
- ATM network protocols and switches.
- Hardare design of a wavelet-based image coder.
- Distributed Java-based applications.
