A committed, strong headed and determined individual, I have been exploring the area of wireless communication for the past 8 years. Over these years I have gone from receiving a bachelor’s degree in Electronics and Communications engineering from Sardar Vallabhbhai National Institute of Technology (S.V. NIT), Surat, India (May 2013) to specializing further in the area of radars, sonars, signal processing and wireless communication through a master’s degree in electrical and computer engineering (signals and systems) from the University of Florida, USA (May 2015).
In a bid to gain useful market knowledge and industry experience, I pushed myself into joining a promising start-up named “Queen B Robotics Inc.” (July 2015) as a lead Communication Systems Engineer (the very first employee!). With an attitude for taking the initiative and the ability to work hard and deliver in pressure situations, I was able to formulate ideas, develop the implementational framework, conduct a cost analysis, develop prototypes, test and then provision a real world implementation in a time and cost bound environment.
With these experiences in 2016, I joined the Wireless Network Group, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, BarcelonaTECH, as a Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher to pursue a PhD degree under the esteemed guidance of Dr. E. Lopez-Aguilera and Dr. I. Demirkol. During the course of my Phd I have been an author of multiple international publications, and also a patent application, wherein the objective has been to enhance the mobility management procedures for 5th Generation wireless networks.
Aside from the academic activities, I am an active 10K, 15K and half marathoner. I also train for and take part in obstacle races, as well as have been part of multiple football teams in amateur leagues. I have also recently captained a mixed team in a football league, wherein our team went onto achieve the 3rd position as well as was the winner of the fair-play award. I am also an active badminton player at the university wherein I have participated in multiple regional tournaments.
Additionally, I am also passionate about photography. My foray into photography started 3 years ago, and since then my passion and interest for the same has grown manifolds. Some of my work can be viewed in the photography tab on this website, and you can visit my instagram account for more pictures.
