I am an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science and Engineering department at the University of South Carolina. My research interests include Wireless Systems and Architectures, Millimeter-wave Communications and Networks, Internet of Things Connectivity and Sensing Systems.

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where the Electrical and Computer Engineering department nominated me for the Wisconsin Distinguished Graduate Fellowship for outstanding graduate work. Before that, I received my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Engineering from the Bengal Engineering and Science University, India, where I earned the President of India gold medal.

I am looking for prospective students to join my research group. Send me an email if you are interested.
