I am currently a Senior Lecturer with the Division of Computer Science and informatics, London South Bank University, since 2019. I received Ph.D degree in Electrical Engineering from University College London in 2017. From 2017 to 2019, and I was a Research Associate at Loughborough University.

My research interests include Intelligent Reflecting Surface Communications, UAV communications, wireless edge caching, millimeter-wave communications, heterogeneous cellular networks, physical-layer security, and Blockchain.

I have published more than 40 refereed IEEE journal/conference papers, and some book chapters. I am very active in the wireless community. I have served as an Editor of the IEEE Wireless Communication Letters and Guest Editor of IEEE Internet of Things Journal Special Issue on ‘Intelligent Blockchain for the Internet of Things in 2018. I am also serving TPC members at conferences such as WCNC, Globecom, ICC.
