I received my Ph.D. in Telecommunications and Computer Networking, and Computer Science from the University of Missouri - Kansas City, under the guidance of Dr. Baek-Young Choi. My research interests lie in the areas of mobile systems and applications which involve Internet of Things (IoT), Smart Wearable Systems, Visible Light Communication, Authentication and Security for Smart Devices, Vehicular Communication with Smart Devices, and Positioning & Localization for Smart Devices.
Following graduation, I founded Glaukes Labs.
I have also served as a Researcher and Research and Development Intern at TCS Innovation Labs - Cincinnati during the course of my doctoral studies. My research focused on Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
MY LATEST RESEARCH
WiFi-Honk: An innovative vehicular communication system with Android powered smart devices removing reliance on DSCR (802.11p) protocol. Exploits beacon stuffing for relevant information transmission that increases previously established mobility for WiFi protocol from 5 Mph to ~70 Mph
OptAuth: An Arduino powered wearable system, which is a hardware token to authenticate users of smart devices such as a smartphones and tablets. Innovation lies in enabling Visible Light Communication (VLC) for smart devices by exploiting their ambient light sensor.
