I am a PhD student in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). I'm a member of the Cognitive Reconfigurable Embedded Systems (CORES) Lab, where I'm working under the supervision of Dr. Danijela Cabric.
I'm passionate about the research and development of wireless systems and networks that connect people and enable IoT applications across many vertical sectors. In my current research, I leverage tools such as optimization, signal processing, stochastic processes, and communication theory to solve challenges pertaining massive IoT networking, ultra-reliable connectivity for industrial IoT, spectrum sharing and coexistence of different wireless technologies, and dynamic spectrum access.
I have held summer research internships at Qualcomm Research (Wireless R&D division) in San Diego, CA, and Nokia Bell Labs in Arlington Heights, IL.
I have received my master's degree from Queen's University, ON, Canada, and my bachelor's from the American University of Sharjah (AUS), United Arab Emirates, in April 2014 and June 2012, respectively.
