I am a PhD student in the Cognitive Reconfigurable Embedded Systems (CORES) Lab in the Electrical Engineering department at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). 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 like 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 and my bachelor's from the American University of Sharjah (AUS) in April 2014 and June 2012, respectively.
- Our work on unlicensed massive IoT access using ultra-narrowband communications will be presented in DySPAN'18.
- Our work on unlicensed massive IoT communications using a DSA-based architecture will be presented in GLOBECOM'18.
- Our work on cellular IoT in the presence of data aggregators will be presented in GLOBECOM'18.
- Our work on coverage and rate maximization for cellular IoT devices and legacy UEs to appear in IEEE Trans. on Wireless Commun.
- Part of my work during my summer internship at Bell Labs has been presented by Amitava Ghosh in IEEE 5G World Forum'18 in Santa Clara, CA.
