Associate Professor and Associate Graduate Director
Department of Computer Science
Georgia State University
I am an Associate Professor (with Tenure) in the Department of Computer Science (CS) at Georgia State University (GSU) and the founding director of
the Mobile and Robotic Systems through Experiential research lab (MORSE Studio). I am also currently serving as an Associate Graduate Director in the department of CS at GSU.
I completed my postdoctoral research working with Prof.Peter Steenkiste from Carnegie Mellon University in 2016 and Ph.D. under the mentorship of Profs. Marco Gruteser, Narayan Mandayam and Kristin Dana
from Wireless Information Network Lab (WINLAB) at Rutgers University in 2014. I am a recepient of the 2022 National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award .
I am co-chairing the ACM Workshop on Mobile and Optical Wireless Experiments and Systems (MOWES'2023 ) to be held with CPS-IoT Week. Considering submitting to the workshop and attending!
I am a publicity chair for CPS-IoT Week 2023 . Paper notifications coming this month. Workshops, Tutorials and Competition events announced. Poster and Demo submissions solicitations coming soon.
Dear Undergraduate students. We are accepting applications to our REU Site on Smart and Autonomous IoT Systems for Summer 2023 (apply here )
I am interested in research areas that are emerging and focus on next-generation advancement, open new avenues of applications, and
are directly relatable with real-world problems. My research philosophy focuses on solving problems in mobile and robotic systems using experimentation based research methodologies.
My research lab (MORSE Studio) focuses on emerging technologies and spans work across communications and networking, environmental
systems, sensors and robotic systems, and mobile computing. My research combines expertise in theory, software engineering, hardware
design, application development and experimentation. My research work can be broadly ramified into the following broad areas:
Next-generation Optical Wireless Systems
Mobile visible light communication (VLC), Camera Communication, Terahertz (THz) communication and networking, Vehicular systems
(ground, aerial, underwater)
Smart Sensing and Wireless Signaling
Robotics and non-contact sensing, Intelligent Reflecting Surfaces (IRS)
Mobile Computing and Systems
Mobile Health (human physical rehabilitation, animal behavior), Joint computer vision with wireless networking
Climate and Earth Science
Environmental science (soil and air quality, noise pollution), Cosmic ray sensing, Earth and space weather modeling, Microclimates
Student Research Opportunities
Graduate I actively involve Ph.D. and M.S. graduate students in research through graduate research assistantships (GRA).
There is 1 fully funded Ph.D. and 1 M.S. GRA openings in my lab for Fall 2023. Apply here
Undergraduate I actively involve undergraduate students in research through independent research experiences (REU, Independent Research, Honors thesis, Capstone design, CURE). Apply here
GSU Student Clubs I direct and mentor the GirlsWhoCode (GWC) college loop, Robotics and Tech4Creatives student clubs at GSU. Please look out for more information about the clubs and join as a member through
PIN (GSU internal) and our webpages.
