Professor Effros and her group in the Data Compression Laboratory do research on information compression and communication. This research ranges from analyses of the optimal performance theoretically achievable in data storage and transmission to the design of practical algorithms for the communication of image and video data across noisy channels. The research combines ideas from communications, signal processing, probability theory, and information theory.

Effros's research groups are the Data Compression Lab and the
Caltech Communications Group.
