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.

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.
