My research interests are in wireless communications, specializing in cognitive and software-defined radio, communication systems engineering, wireless spectrum and dynamic spectrum access, cyber-physical systems, cognitive radio and electro-magnetic spectrum security, satellite communications, vehicular communications, next-generation wireless networks (e.g., LTE-A), and wireless system optimization and adaptation.
I am a Senior Member of the IEEE, as well as a member of the ASEE, Sigma Xi, and Eta Kappa Nu.
I am currently being sponsored or have been sponsored by the following organizations:
If you are a company or a government organization that is faced with a challenging technical problem in the wireless domain, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org such that we can discuss how I can help you.
For more information about my research activities, please visit the Wireless Innovation Laboratory website.
During my career at WPI, I have taught the following courses:
- ECE4304: Communication Systems Engineering
- ECE4305: Software Defined Radio Systems and Analysis
- ECE502: Analysis of Probabilistic Signals and Systems
- ECE503: Digital Signal Processing
- ECE5312: Modern Digital Communications
Additionally, I have taught short courses and presented tutorials around the world across a wide range of topics for both industrial and academic audiences. I have also put together online courseware for specific topics.
Finally, I am actively involved in advising several undergraduate student projects here at WPI every year. For more information about these student projects and the resulting final project reports, please visit the Wireless Innovation Laboratory website.
I have published the following two books:
