I received my B.E.(Electronics) from Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology, Nagpur, India in 2002 and M.E.(Telecommunication) from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India in 2004. During 2004-2007, I worked at Esqube Communications, Bangalore which was a start-up by IISc Professors, as a Senior Wireless Communications Engineer. At Esqube, I worked on development and implementation of wireless systems such as WLAN, WiMAX, and TDD-SCDMA. During 2007-2012, I did my PhD with Prof. Visa Koivunen at Department of Signal Processing and Acoustics, Aalto University (formerly Helsinki University of Technology (TKK)). Department of Signal Processing and Acoustics at Aalto is part of SMARAD (Smart and Novel Radios Research Unit) Center of Excellence in Research nominated by Academy of Finland. During 2008-2010, my research was part of EU FP7 project called SEnsor Networks for Dynamic and cOgnitive Radio Access (SENDORA). Between 2013-2014, I was a post-doctoral researcher at Aalto University where I worked on the Phase 2 of a Tekes (Finnish funding agency) funded project called Enabling Methods for Dynamic Spectrum Access and Cognitive Radios (ENCOR 2). Since December 2014, I am working as an Assistant Professor at IIIT-Hyderabad.
