I am a research engineer in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Rice University. I am the lead engineer on the RENEW project, a NSF-funded platform for advanced wireless research (PAWR). I work with Ashutosh Sabhrawal and Lin Zhong who lead the project. Prior to that, I worked on ArgosNet, an NSF CRI-funded project for building a multi-cell massive MIMO network across Rice Campus.

Previously, I completed my PhD in Computer Engineering from Northeastern University. My advisor was Kaushik Chowdhury. During my PhD, I did summer internships at Microsoft Research Cambridge and Qualcomm New England. I received my M.Sc. in Embedded Systems from Delft University of Technology and B.Sc. in Computer Engineering from Sharif University of Technology.

  • Interests

    My research interest spans areas of wireless communications and software-defined radio systems. I am particularly interested in system building and proof-of-concept development for next-generation broadband wireless networks. I contribute to multiple open-source projects, including OpenAirInterface and Ziria.

    Outside the domain of work, I take interest in a variety of subjects and activities including, but not limited to, classical music and photography.
