My research interests
are broadly in experimental wireless networking and mobile computing, with a current focus on millimeter wave networking, LTE/WiFi coexistence, energy-aware protocol design for smartphones, and novel RF applications. I lead the UB Wireless Networking and Systems Lab (UB WiNS Lab).
I received the IEEE Region 1 Technological Innovation (Academic) Award in 2019, the UB Teaching Innovation Award in 2018, the NSF CAREER Award in 2016, the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences Senior Teacher of the Year Award in 2017 and the Early Career Researcher of the Year Award in 2015, and the CSE Senior Researcher of the Year Award in 2019 and Early Career Faculty Teaching Award in 2015.
12/27/2019: PhD openings in UB WiNS Lab for Fall 2020 in topics related to millimeter wave networking and mobile apps (VR, video streaming) over 5G networks. I am looking for students with strong
coding skills and good systems/networking background. Experience in any of the following is a plus: kernel programming,
wireless drivers, Android, wireless communications/PHY layer, signal processing, LabView. Interested students should apply online
and email me their CV.
