Virtual Office Hours

[August 10, 2020] Office hours will be held virtually until mid-September unless specifically requested for in-person meetings. For in-person meetings, masks are required and the office area is limited to a maximum capacity of two. All in-person meetings will be held in 211B Cushing due to logistical issues associated with opening the CDT space in O’Shaughnessy.

Fall 2020 Office Hours

[July 12, 2020] Fall 2020 office hours will be as follows:

Monday – 1-2 PM – 211 Cushing
Wednesday – 9-11 AM – CDT space in O’Shaughnessy
Friday – 8:15 – 11 AM – Dedicated appointment block in either Cushing / O’Shaughnessy (typically Cushing)

Friday mornings are a dedicated block for scheduled appointments with students (BACS, CSE) that are intentionally excluded from recurring meetings.  Simply shoot myself or one of the admins a note (Tiffanie Sammons if you are coming from the CSE side or Claire Shelly if you are BACS or interested in the BACS) at least the day before by COB (Close of Business) and you as a student can schedule an appointment.  Depending on where the appointments are best suited, I will hold them either in O’Shaughnessy or in Cushing.

The Monday and Wednesday times are open to walk-ins, no appointment needed.

Back from Sabbatical

[January 10th, 2020] Alas, all good things must come to an end and my sabbatical is officially wrapped up as of this Friday with the start of the spring semester this coming week.  This spring, I will be teaching the second iteration of my course on Advanced Wireless Networks and will officially be back on campus full-time at my office in 211B Cushing Hall.

Advanced Wireless Networks

[October 15th, 2018] I will be teaching a course in the spring on Advanced Wireless Networks.  Should be an interesting run through basic networking, basic wireless, and WiFi / cellular with a few dashes of MANET (ad hoc), D2D, and low power.  The class will be offered at the graduate level only though undergraduates are welcome to inquire.  The class is primarily targeted at CSE and EE graduate students.  Will be a nice time for me personally to shore up a broader perspective on the various 3GPP releases outside of what occasional expert work here and there entails. Synopsis for the class is below:

The focus of this course will be to explore a complete stack view of the key challenges associated with wireless networks across a variety of contexts including: wireless fundamentals, historical and contemporary wireless standards, WiFi, cellular, low power, and device-to-device / ad hoc networks.  The course will explore seminal and contemporary research papers with a focus on the systems and performance aspects of wireless networking.  The course will culminate in experimentally-focused research projects utilizing wireless technologies.
