I am a Professor in the School of Engineering and a Fellow of the IEEE. I’m interested in designing and optimising future wireless communication systems.

My research focuses on developing signal processing algorithms and resource allocation strategies that enable future wireless data communication networks and unlock new modes of connectivity. I apply my background in signal processing, information theory, and system modelling, to build mathematically rigorous algorithms, system models, and performance analysis results. Applications of my research include 5/6G mobile network design, LEO Satellite communication systems, UAV communications, and wireless internet-of-things.
