I am a doctoral student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Boston University. I work as a research assistant in the Multimedia Communication Lab and am a member of the Smart Lighting Engineering Research Center. I have an MS in biomedical engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles.

I was awarded the prestigious Dean’s fellowship for two semesters at BU.

My current research interests lie in the field of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wireless communications and networking. My thesis work is focused on design and optimization of indoor diffuse optical wireless communication systems. The framework generated by this work will enable the design of optimal dual-purpose communication and lighting systems. My other interests lie in engineering devices, applications and tools for ‘smart spaces’ to monitor and improve health and productivity.

I have worked in the industry for about three years from year 2007 to 2010. I developed embedded software for electric motor drive units at Enova Systems in Torrance, CA. I also developed user interface software and implemented analytical algorithms for DNA profiling machines at Advanced Analytical Technologies in Ames, IA.

I am married to the brilliant and beautiful Anuja Mehta who is pursuing her doctorate at Brandeis University.

I am a Manchester United fan.
