Brief Biography

I received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications from University of New South Wales (Sydney, Australia). I am a Senior lecturer at Monash University. I was Director of Graduate Research (2016-2/18) of the ECSE Department at Monash. Currently I serve on the Australian Research Council College of Experts. I am a Fellow of IET, a Senior Member of IEEE, a member of IEEE Communications Society, IEEE Information Theory Soceity, and IEEE Vehicular Technology Society. I will be the Tutorial Chair of 2021 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory, Melbourne. I was the General co-Chair of 2014 IEEE Information Theory Workshop at Hobart, Tasmania; the Technical Program Committee Chair of the 2011 Australian Communication Theory workshop, Melbourne; the Publicity Chair of 2009 IEEE Information Theory Workshop at Taromina, Sicily; and Technical Program Committee Member of various IEEE leading conferences. I was Associate Editor of IEEE Wireless Communications Letters (WCL) and Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies (ETT). I received the NICTA-ACoRN Early Career Researcher award at AUSCTW Adelaide 2007. I lead a group of research students and postdocs working on topics in communications technology, wireless security, and coding techniques for wireless communications and networking as well as SSD storage.
