Profile Summary 

Since September 2019, I am working with the Electrical Engineering Department of the School of Engg@Shiv Nadar Institution of Eminence, Delhi-NCR, India. Before that, I was a doctoral student at the Electrical Engineering department@Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay). The focus of my Ph.D. study was on "Efficient Decentralized Power adaptation strategies for Multiple Access Channels." I successfully defended my Ph.D. dissertation in June 2019. My current research interests are 5G/6G mmWave communication systems & information-theoretic aspects of Wireless communications.
