I am an associate professor in the Computer Science Department in the School of Computing at George Mason University. Before joining Mason, I was a postdoc at University of California, Davis where I worked with Dr. Prasant Mohapatra. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from North Carolina State University in 2012 where I was supervised by Dr. Rudra Dutta. I am a recipient of the NSF CAREER award (2021), CCI Fellowship (2023), IDIA P3 fellowship (2023) and Excellence in Postdoctoral Research award at UC Davis (2015).

Research Interests

My research interest are broadly in the areas of wireless networking and mobile computing. I am currently interested in

  • Designing high-speed millimeter-wave wireless networks for supporting applications such as AR/VR/MR, backhauling, etc.,
  • Low-power, high-speed Internet-of-Things (IoT) including backscatter systems,
  • Mobile, wearable and wireless sensing systems with applications in human interaction, smart spaces and accessibility.
