Research Interests: I'm interested in everything related to information theory, in particular with distributed users that have partial (imperfect) observations or can cooperate in a constrained manner.
Most of my previous research activities have been related to one of the following:
  • Communication over networks with feedback, state-information, cooperation links, correlated sources, or caches.
  • Distributed compression and storage systems with side-information and under reconstruction constraints.
  • Coordination of smart distributed agents over noisy networks.
  • Distributed detection systems (hypothesis tests) with partial distributed side-information.
  • For more information about my research, please consider my publications and presentations.


    Short Bio: Michèle Wigger received the M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering, with distinction, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering both from ETH Zurich in 2003 and 2008, respectively. She was awarded two ETH Medals, one for her Master Thesis and one for her PhD Thesis. Dr. Wigger received a Swiss National Science Foundation Scholarship for Prospective Researchers, and in 2009 was a post-doctoral fellow at the University of California, San Diego, USA. She has held visiting professor appointments at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology and ETH Zurich. She joined Telecom Paris Tech, Paris France in 2009 where she is currently an Associate Professor. Dr. Wigger is an associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory and the IEEE Communications Letters. She has served as a TPC member for numerous conferences in information theory and communications (e.g., ISIT 2012-2017; ITW 2015 and 2017; PIMRC 2013-2015). She is a member of the Board of Governors of the IEEE Information Theory Society, and also of its outreach subcommittee. Significant funding accomplishments include an Emergences Grant from the city of Paris, a Discruptive-ICT grant from Huawei, and an ERC Starting Grant.
