I am currently the 5G and AI Research Assistant Professor with the Commonwealth Cyber Initiative and a Research Assistant Professor with the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech. I hold a Ph.D. in EEE from Trinity College Dublin, Ireland (2016) and an M.Sc. in Electronics and Telecommunications from Poznan University of Technology, Poland (2008). Previously I was a Research Fellow with CONNECT at Trinity College Dublin and a Challenge Research Fellow with Science Foundation Ireland. Prior to my Ph.D., I was a Research Scientist with the Wroclaw Research Centre EIT+. My research is about technologies and architectures that will make Next G mobile networks more flexible, reliable, secure, and amenable to new services and disruptive business models. In my work, I use mathematical analysis for problem modeling and design, including stochastic geometry, optimization, and, more recently, AI and ML. I am also keen on developing large-scale simulation-based models and software-defined experimental approaches to evaluating new technologies.
I am a Senior Member of the IEEE and a Fulbright Fellow.
I am also a Contributing Member of the ATIS Next G Alliance Spectrum Working Group.
