I am a fourth year Ph.D. student in the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech. My interests lie in the field of wireless communications with primary focus on dynamic spectrum access and coexistence among heterogeneous wireless networks. At present, I work with Dr. Jerry Park in the Wireless@VirginiaTech lab, where I have been working on facilitating harmonious coexistence among heterogeneous wireless technologies. During my Ph.D. study, I did internships at Alphabet Inc. (former Google) and AT&T Labs, which helped me strengthen my problem-solving skills in wireless communications.
Before joining Virginia Tech, I was a graduate research assistant in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Tennessee State University (TSU). At TSU, I worked on designing robust transmit beamforming schemes for underlay cognitive network as a part of my Master's thesis.
