About Me

I am a Professor of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Prior to joining UMBC in 2019, I served a 4-year term as a Program Director (rotator) for the Industry-University Cooperative Research Centers program at the the National Science Foundation in the Computer and Network Systems (CNS) Division and was the Hardy Edmiston Endowed Professor of Computer Science at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette (UL Lafayette). I earned my M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in computer science and engineering from Michigan State University in 1997 and 2002, respectively, and my B.S. degree in computer science from Tuskegee University in 1995. My current research spans the area of wireless and mobile networking, including dynamic spectrum managment, cognitive radio networks, IoT/cyber physical systems, sensor networks, wireless LANs, cellular-based networks, and formal performance evaluation. I received the NSF CAREER Award in 2005. I am a Senior Member of the IEEE.
