ABOUT ME

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 and Data Analysis Lab. I am also on the extended faculty of RIT's Ph.D. Program in Computing and Information Sciences. In Summer 2018, I was a Visiting Research Faculty at the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory, Information Directorate. I obtained the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from University at Buffalo, The State University of New York, in August 2015, advised by Professor Dimitris A. Pados.

Since September 2017, I serve as Editor of IEEE WCL. In August 2013, I received the best paper award at the IEEE sponsored International Symposium on Wireless Communication Systems (ISWCS 2013).
