About me

I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, California State University (CSUS), Sacramento. I received a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from The University of Akron, Ohio in 2014 with an emphasis on wireless communication and signal processing. Prior to joining CSUS, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Wireless and Networking and Communications Group at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin). I was also affiliated with the Center for Transportation Research at UT Austin.

Teaching and Advising

Office Hours: TuTh 11:00 am-12:30 pm, and/or by appointment.
Spring 2019 - Teaching ENGR 120: Probability and Random Signals and EEE 185: Modern Communication Systems.


My current research focuses on millimeter-wave communications for 5G, with emphasis on analog/hybrid beamforming, compressed channel estimation, Physical layer security, and applications of communication systems in intelligent transportation systems.
