I am an Assistant Professor in the Dept. of Computer Science at Georgia State University (GSU)
since Spring 2017 and direct the MORSE Studio. My research group focuses on emerging technologies in Mobile and Robotic
Systems through experiential research. My work spans areas in visible light and camera communications, mobile and wearable
systems, robotics, vehicular networking, computer vision, and mHealth.
I completed my postdoctoral research from Carnegie Mellon University in 2016 and my Ph.D. from Wireless Information Network Lab (WINLAB)
at Rutgers University in 2014. My thesis pioneered camera–based communication through a novel concept called visual MIMO. I have founded and
continues to co–chair the ACM Wearable Systems and Applications (WearSys) workshop since 2015.
I serve on the program committee for several ACM and IEEE conferences and journals and am currently a guest editor
for the special issue on Visible Light and Camera Communications in MDPI Electronics journal, for Exploring Deep Learning for Efficient
and Reliable Mobile Sensing in IEEE Network Magazine, and for a special issue on vehicular networking in IET-WSS.
My research interests focus on emerging technologies for building mobile Cyber–Physical Systems (CPS).
The central motivating theme of my research is to design systems and methodologies to address hardware and software system research challenges to
build next–generation smart mobile systems. I direct the MORSE Studio at GSU where my research group focuses on the science and engineering of MObile and Robotic Systems through Experiential research.
My research through this lab can be ramified into three areas within mobile CPS,
Next-generation Mobile Networking using Optical Wireless
Robotic and Autonomous Vehicular Systems
Smart Sensing and Computing in Internet-of-Things (IoT)
