Welcome


It’s my pleasure to welcome you to my homepage.


About Me

I received my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi in 2011. I have joined IIT Indore in May 2012 as an Assistant Professor in the Discipline of Electrical Engineering, where I have been working as an Associate Professor since December 2017. Previously, I was associated with the Electronics & Communication Engineering Department of BIT Mesra as an Assistant Professor.

My research interests are in the area of wireless communication theory and systems. I'm leading a Wireless Communications (WiCom) Research Group at IIT Indore, which is actively involved in cutting-edge research and development to cater to the emerging needs of the next generation wireless communication systems. I'm regularly contributing and peer reviewing research papers in IEEE journals and conferences, and have authored a book and three book chapters. I'm a Senior Member of the IEEE and the Life Member of the IETE.
