I am an incoming assistant professor at Rowan University, NJ. I obtained my Ph.D. in computer engineering from Virginia Tech, VA, in December 2023 and am currently a postdoctoral researcher with the Commonwealth Cyber Initiative at Virginia Tech

My research focuses on designing, building, and evaluating wireless networks for reliability: networks that can perform under stringent performance requirements and withstand failures, attacks, and disasters. I have worked on topics such as ultra-reliable low-latency communication (URLLC), reconfigurable intelligent surfaces (RIS), Open RAN, stochastic geometry, software-defined radios, and applied machine learning, and collaborated with initiatives such as the NextG Alliance, 6G Flagship at the University of Oulu, and AT&T Research Labs.
