Welcome to my website! My research interests are the design and experimental evaluation of next-generation edge-assisted wireless systems, with applications spanning from the Internet of Things to NextG cellular communications. My technical expertise includes (i) embedded system design and development; (ii) machine learning algorithms and frameworks; (iii) edge computing algorithms and paradigms; (iv) wireless communication standards and architectures; (v) software-defined radio design and development. Over the years, I invented or co-invented a number of patents in these areas.

My research group is generously supported by a number of projects funded by the National Science Foundation and the Department of Defense. I am a member of the Roux Institute and the Institute for the Wireless Internet of Things at Northeastern University. I have received the Mario Gerla Award for Young Investigators in Computer Science in 2019, as well as the Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award (out of 25 faculty awarded nationwide) in 2023, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research Young Investigator Award (out of 58 faculty awarded nationwide) in 2023, and Best Paper Awards from IEEE INFOCOM 2022 and IEEE WOWMOM 2022. I am a Senior Member of the IEEE and a Member of the ACM.
