Brief Statement of Research Interest

My research interests are related to the issues involved in managing the traffic in next generation networks . These include: 

  • Handovers in heterogeneous networks
  • Device to device communications
  • Social aware data offloading
  • Machine to machine communication
  • Relays for MTC data
  • Data aggregation for massive MTC
  • Machine type communication using millimeter wave NOMA transmission
  • Optimal clustering in machine type communication networks


Cooperative data aggregation and resource management in MTC networks
