I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Carnegie Mellon University in CyLab working with Anthony Rowe. I received my PhD in computer science from the University of Virginia in 2019 working with my advisor Kamin Whitehouse. I also received my M.S. in computer engineering from Sharif University of Technology in 2013.
My research interests span the areas of wireless sensing and networking with applications in Cyber-Physical Systems, and Internet of Things. I create the next generation of intelligent wireless systems that are faster, lower power, pervasive, and can even sense the physical environment. You can learn more about my Ph.D research here.
My recent work seeks to build a foundation for joint communication and sensing in wireless embedded systems of the future by applying signal processing and machine learning techniques to low-level RF signals.
