Dr. Ingram’s early research areas were optical
communications and radar systems. In 1997, she established the
Smart Antenna Research Laboratory (SARL), which emphasizes
the application of multiple antennas to wireless communication systems;
this includes multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) architectures, smart
antennas, and adaptive arrays.
The SARL performs system analysis and design, channel measurement, and
prototyping relating to a wide range of wireless applications,
including wireless local area network (WLAN) and satellite communications,
with focus on the lower layers of communication networks.
