Background

Summary

10 years of experience in wireless communications networks research and development built on a strong foundation in digital signal processing and communications theory and backed by over 10 peer-reviewed publications and 13 patents (all pending)


Design experience in every part of the LTE receiver chain including algorithm development, performance prediction, algorithm optimization, reference code generation as well as simulation environment development for performance and conformance testing and test vector generation

Adept problem solving skills with a proven track record in troubleshooting complex unit and system level problems

Extensive experience in the modeling and analysis of wireless cellular communications networks at both the systems and link level

More than four years of LTE-A standards work (Releases 10-13) including more than three years of active 3GPP RAN1 working group participation as lead delegate for Texas Instruments Inc.

Experience

Systems and Standards Engineer

Texas Instruments
– Present (4 years 6 months)

Generating IPR and participating as lead delegate in the 3GPP RAN1 working group


Designing and optimizing LTE receiver algorithms, generating reference code (C and MATLAB) for software engineers and conducting performance and conformance tests

Maintaining (runtime and memory optimization) and evolving both link and systems level downlink simulators with LTE Releases 10-12 features for product development and 3GPP standard contributions


Defining requirements and system specifications for next generation LTE data path hardware acceleration and system-on-chip (SoC) architecture development


Defining requirements and system specifications for several LTE PHY software libraries

Supervising and mentoring two summer interns and defining project, milestones, and deliverables


Supporting technical and strategic marketing and product roadmap definition, co-authoring white papers, contributing to Texas Instruments’ company blog, and giving tutorials on MBMS, 3GPP/WLAN interworking, LTE relays, eICIC and others

Research Staff and Teaching Assistant

University of Notre Dame
(5 years 9 months)

Conducted research in the area of statistical space-time signal processing for multi-cell multi-user multi-antenna wireless communications systems with focus on practical algorithms suited for implementation and published on joint transmit and receive filter design, iterative optimization, modeling and prediction of non-stationary intercell interference, centralized and distributed multi-cell scheduling, coordinated multi-point transmission, sum-rate optimization with non-ideal backhaul, power control for heterogeneous networks, and leakage and MMSE based precoding


Taught more than 10 semester-long undergraduate and graduate level recitation classes and labs on circuit theory, signals and systems, communications systems, and signal processing for which I received two awards for excellence in teaching from the Kaneb Center for Teaching and Learning at the University of Notre Dame
