I am actively recruiting motivated Ph.D. students. Email me if you are a prospective Ph.D. student with similar research interests.
I am an Assistant Professor in the School of EECS at Ohio University, where I lead the Wireless Systems Research Group (WSRG). My area of research is computer networking, and (current) specific research interests include:
Optical Wireless Networks/Free space optical communication
Situational Awareness, QoS/QoE, cross layer optimization
Cellular networks, LTE
Previously, I was a postdoc in the Wireless Networks Lab, headed by Prof. Zygmunt J. Haas, in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Texas at Dallas. I received my PhD and MS in Computer Engineering from Texas A&M University, advised by Prof. Radu Stoleru. Back in 2007, I happened to obtain a degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering, from NITK Surathkal, India. I am originally from Bangalore, India.
We are very grateful to these agencies for sponsoring our group's research:
