Prospective PhD Students

I am looking for highly motivated Ph.D. candidates who are excited about working at the intersection of Wireless and Embedded Systems. Students with either ECE or CS major are welcome to apply (I recruit students from both the ECE and CS department at UIUC). Candidates with any of the following backgrounds would be particularly encouraged to apply: network/mobile systems, signal processing, wireless communication, embedded systems, applied machine learning (intuition learning, deep reinforcement learning, deep learning for signal processing).

Interested individuals may send me an email with the following information: (1) your CV, (2) a copy of your transcripts, (3) a brief description of your background and research interests. The subject of the email should start with "[Prospective_Student]".  I will reach out if your background seems like a potential good fit.


We have two postdoc openings in our group:

(1) in Millimeter-wave backscatter communication and sensing (please read our recent work on this topic: Millimeter-wave retro-reflectors). If you think you are a good fit for this position, send me an email at

(2) in Microwave UAV-based Remote Sensing for wildfire monitoring, in collaboration with the Civil and Environmental Engineering, and the US Forest Service. (more information here)

Undergraduate and Masters Students at UIUC

I'm excited to work with undergraduate and Masters students who are interested in gaining research experience. If you are a UIUC student in CS/ECE/ESE (or related degrees) and are interested in my research, please send me an email and we can find a time to meet and discuss potential projects. You can also see short descriptions of our active projects for Spring 2023 here
