Research Interest

I work broadly in the area of networks and wireless systems. Currently, my focus is on next generation of wireless standards (5G/6G, IEEE 802.11ax/be) specifically on coexistence and convergence of different radio access technologies. I also actively work in the area of Software-Defined Networks (SDN) and Non-Terrestrial Networks (NTN). I obtained my PhD from IIT Hyderabad where my focus was on employing novel coexistence schemes in LTE-U/LAA and Wi-Fi Networks for efficient utilization of unlicensed spectrum.
