I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay.

From March 2013 till June 2014, I was working at Qualcomm Research New Jersey on problems related to visible light communication. Before that, I was a graduate student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin. I successfully defended my Ph.D. dissertation in February 2013.

My work involves studying and quantifying the benefits and performance of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) concepts in optical and wireless communication systems systems. In particular, I aim to study different signaling as well as signal processing techniques which would enable efficient MIMO communication over optical fibers, as well as wireless communication links.
