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 communications and networking, robotics, environmental systems and privacy/security. 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, Editor for Elsevier Vehicular Communications, Guest Editor for the special issue on Visible Light and Camera Communications in MDPI Electronics journal, and in the working committee for IEEE P1920.2 (Vehicle to Vehicle Communications for Unmanned Aircraft Systems) standard.
My research interests focus on emerging technologies for mobile and robotic systems. 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 as follows:
