Since August 2014, I am a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at University at Albany, SUNY. Prior to Joining SUNY I graduated with a PhD from the Department of Computer Science at University of California, Santa Barbara. I received my Bachelor and Masters degrees of Engineering from the Technical University of Sofia, Bulgaria.

My research focus is on wireless networks for infrastructure-challenged regions. In the past, I have worked on other projects related to wireless networking including monitoring, medium access control for 60 GHz networks and smart phones.
Most recently I worked on an exciting project at Microsoft Research and Microsoft Technology Policy Group. The goal of the project was twofold: on one hand, demonstrating feasibility of White Spaces networking for rural areas and on the other, enabling Dynamic Spectrum Access beyond the TV White Spaces.
