About me: I am currently an Assistant Professor at DA-IICT. I obtained my PhD from the University of British Columbia, Vancouver (rated as the most liveable city in the world; it has some great beaches and has nature in its most pristine form), BC, Canada in 2009. My PhD supervisor was Prof. Vikram Krishnamurthy. My PhD dissertation title was: Resource Management in Wireless Networks. Prior to that I obtained my Masters degree from Wichita State University, Wichita, KS, USA, under the guidance of Dr. Sudharman Jayaweera (currently at University of New Mexico). My Masters thesis title was: Capacity of MIMO Systems - A Theoretical and Practical Perspective.
