I am a tenure-track Assistant Professor with the department of Electrical and Microelectronic Engineering (EME) at Rochester Insitute of Technology, where I direct the Signal Processing for Data Communication and Analysis (SCAN) Research Group and co-direct the EME Communications Laboratory. My research is in the areas of Signal Processing, Data Analysis, Machine Learning, and Wireless Communications. I obtained the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering in August 2015, from University at Buffalo, The State University of New York, advised by Professor Dimitris A. Pados.

In January 2017, I was distinguished as Exemplary Reviewer of IEEE Wireless Communications Letters (IEEE WCL). Since September 2017, I serve as Editor of IEEE WCL. In August 2013, I received the best paper award at the IEEE International Symp. on Wireless Communication Systems (IEEE ISWCS 2013).



Data Processing and Machine Learning
  • Statistical and adaptive signal and data processing
  • Corruption-resistant data analysis
  • L1-norm Principal-Component Analysis (L1-PCA)
  • Tensor processing of multi-modal data
  • L1-norm Tucker decomposition
  • Reliable learning from few training measurements
  • Efficient algorithms for processing "big" and "heavy" data
  • Efficient combinatorial optimization
Communication Theory and Systems
  • Multiple-access and interference channels
  • Signal-waveform design, beamforming, and filtering for interference avoidance/suppression
  • Optimal processing for sparse sensor arrays (e.g., nested, coprime)
  • Sparse spread-spectrum channelization
  • Learning for cognitive communication systems
  • Massive MIMO
  • mm-Wave communications
  • GPS-less localization



Since 2016, SCAN's research has been sponsored by:
