About Me

I am 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. My recent research has focused on channel estimation and beamforming for mmWave systems. I am exploring the possible ways to use the side-information for efficient beamforming. I have also been exploring the application of machine learning for these tasks.

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 and applications of Fourier series and transforms, concepts of linear algebra and information theory at IIT Roorkee.
