Professor Kschischang's research interests are in the area of digital communications, particularly in the area of communication algorithms as used, for example, to decode information transmitted over a noisy channel with an error-correcting code. Applications for this work occur in modem design for wireless communication, free-space optical communication, fibre-optic communication, powerline communication, digital subscriber lines, etc., as well as in information distribution over the Internet.

Keywords: factor graphs, graphical models, the sum-product algorithm, low-density parity-check codes, turbo codes, network coding, subspace codes, trellis-coded modulation, trellis structure of codes, constellation shaping, multidimensional sphere packing.
