My career aim since my childhood was to become a major part of creating genuine and innovative ideas. Being a PhD student at SINE lab is giving me the chance to explore wide varieties of ideas and be part of different projects. Since 2016, I have participated in multiple projects related to communications, sensing, positioning, signal processing and artificial intelligence. These projects have introduced me to collaboration with research teams from UAlbany, as well as, highly-ranked universities such as Boston university (BU), Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) and New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). Even more, working with a large team of both undergraduate and graduate students is guiding me to enhance my thought process to initiate fruitful brainstorming for creative research concepts. As a senior member of the SINE lab, I have a responsibility of always developing the lab vision, mission and structure. Currently, my research scope is focused on providing innovative sensing and networks solutions to applications utilizing visible light communications.
As a student at UAlbany, I have been introduced to Entrepreneurship life through different workshops and events. I have been working on transferring the technologies and ideas I have been working on to solve real problems through founding my own start up “LuminaReality”. Through this trip I am getting to learn the business aspect of technology and build a new vision by meeting people from industry, conducting customer discovery and participating in elevator pitch events. Spring 2019 was full of action where I could raise $5200 for LuminaReality through National Science Foundation (NSF) I-Corps program, UAlbany innovation scholarship and UAlbany shark tank.
I obtained my BSc degree followed by MSc in Electronics and Communications in 2016 with interest in Free Space Optical (FSO) Communications from AAST. Besides, I participated in setting up the first photonics laboratory in the university, Photonics Research Laboratory (PRL). In addition, I worked as a teaching assistant for more than 10 courses in the Electronics and Communications department. For more than three years, I have served my surrounding community through the AAST IEEE student branch.
