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. Currently, I serve as an Associate Editor of IEEE Wireless Communications Letters (WCL) and Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies (ETT). I am a Senior Member of IEEE, a member of Communication Theory and Information Theory soceities. 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 received the NICTA-ACoRN Early Career Researcher award at AUSCTW Adelaide 2007. My current research interests include communication theory, wireless security, and coding techniques for wireless communications and networking as well as SSD storage.
