I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Computing, Jarvis College of Computing and Digital Media, DePaul University, and a senior member of the IEEE.
I am also an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the School of Computing at Queen's University
I founded the Next Generation Networking (NexGeN) lab at DePaul University, focusing on interdisciplinary development of IoT and Tactile Internet architectures. I am also a research collaborator with the Telecommunications Research Lab at Queen's University.
I am the lead technical editor of the IEEE P1918.1 Tactile Internet Standard, and the secretary of it's Working Group, which is planned for publication in Q1 2023.
I received my PhD from the School of Computing at Queen’s University under the supervision of Prof. Hossam Hassanein.
My research interests span novel paradigms in sensor networks, advancing core technologies in the Internet of Things and synergy efforts in next generation context-aware sensing systems and content-centric networks. I am also working on the development of an agile architecture for the Tactile Internet, as part of the IEEE P1918.1 Standards Working Group.
During my PhD studies at Queen’s, I spearheaded establishing the Graduate Computing Society (GCS), and chaired the first GCS-conference in 2010. In 2013, I took part in the 3 Minute Thesis competition at Queen's, and made it to the final round.

My CV is available upon request.
I was a member of Queen's University Varsity fencing team, and our team secured three back to back Ontario championships. In my spare time, I enjoy woodworking, photography, and playing squash.
