About Me

I am Kartik Patel, graduate student in Wireless Systems Innovation Laboratory at University of Texas at Austin. I completed B. Tech. in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee.

My research interests lie in the field of wireless communications, signal processing, wireless networks and information theory.

In general, I like to understand and explain fundamentals of mathematics and communication intuitively. I gave talks on intuitive understanding of Fourier Series and Transforms and Information Theory at IIT Roorkee.

I am proficient in programming in Python, C++ and Java. I have developed simulator for Bluetooth Low Energy in NS3. I have also worked on development of a web based display for GNU Radio as a part of Google Summer of Code 2017.

Research Projects

Analytical Modelling of Bluetooth Low Energy Protocol

Developed a mathematical model to analyse Bluetooth Low Energy protocol based sensor networks using Renewal theory.

Bluetooth Low Energy protocol based wireless sensor network design

I got oppurtunity to work on Bluetooth Low Energy based sensor networks under guidance of Dr. Neelesh Mehta at Next Generation Wireless Research Lab, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. I developed Bluetooth Low Energy module in NS3. Documentation of the module is available here.

Non-parametric Spectrum Sensing Technique for Full Duplex Cognitive Radio

I worked with Dr. Dhaval Patel at School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Ahmedabad University. We proposed a novel spectrum sensing technique for Full Duplex Radio.

Other Projects

A web-based display for GNU Radio

The project is part of Google Summer of Code 2017.

I developed a web-based interface for displaying the plots and widgets. The development updates of the project is available here.

Open Source development of Communication System Toolbox in Scilab

The project was under FOSSEE, IIT Bombay funded by Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt. of India

The project was focused on development of Communication System Toolbox in Scilab. I developed various functions of equalizers for the same.

MIPS Single Cycle Microprocessor using VHDL

Implemented a processor capable to run 7 basic instructions. Added python script to convert assembly code to ModelSim Simulation script to provide a programming like interface to simulate the project.

Institute Placement Portal

As a member of Information Management Group, I developed and maintained the Institute Placement Portal. The portal is developed using Python/Django framework for backend and JQuery/Bootstrap frameworks for frontend.

The portal includes Admin interface for Placement office, the student side interface, contact manager (to keep track of contacts of companies by placement office) and other features.
