My research interests are broadly in experimental wireless networking and mobile computing, with a current focus on millimeter wave networking, high-bandwidth applications (AR, VR, 360o video streaming) over wireless networks, LTE/WiFi coexistence, energy-aware protocol design for smartphones, and wireless sensing. I lead the NU Wireless Networking and Systems Lab (NU WiNS Lab).
I have served as the General Co-Chair for ACM EWSN 2018 and TPC Co-Chair for IEEE WoWMoM 2021 and IFIP Networking 2021. I received the IEEE Region 1 Technological Innovation (Academic) Award in 2019, the UB Teaching Innovation Award in 2018, the NSF CAREER Award in 2016, the UB School of Engineering and Applied Sciences Senior Teacher of the Year Award in 2017 and the Early Career Researcher of the Year Award in 2015, and the UB CSE Senior Researcher of the Year Award in 2019 and Early Career Faculty Teaching Award in 2015.
03/10/2021: PhD openings in the NU WiNS Lab in topics related to millimeter wave networking and mobile apps (VR, AR, video streaming) over 5G networks. I am looking for students with strong
coding skills, good systems/networking background, and experience in at least one of the following: kernel programming,
wireless drivers, Android, LabView. Interested students are encouraged to contact me.
03/01/2021: I am serving as the TPC Co-Chair for the Experimental Evaluation and Testbeds Track in IEEE MASS 2021. Please submit your work!
