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.
