About Me

I am Kartik Patel, graduate student in Wireless Networking and Communication Group at the 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. I have been recently exploring the application of machine learning in these fields.

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.

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.
