I am a Postdoctoral Associate in the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech, where I am working with Jerry Park on making our 5G and beyond-5G networks more flexible and secure.

Prior to this, I completed a Ph.D. at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University under the supervision of David J. Love and Chih-Chun Wang.

My research work broadly revolves around the field of wireless communications. I am generally interested in signal processing for wireless communications, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communications, information theory, and mobile networks. I am currently working on topics related to network slicing and the security of 5G networks.

Before my stint at Purdue, I studied electrical engineering and played Power Forward at Tennessee Tech University. Prior to that, I played both Forward positions in N├╝rnberg as well as in Munich, my beautiful home town.
