I am a Postdoctoral Associate at the Wireless Integrated Systems and Extreme Circuits (WISE-Circuits) lab at Boston University, working with Prof. Rabia Tuğçe Yazıcıgil, in collaboration with Prof. Muriel Médard from MIT and Prof. Ken Duffy from Maynooth University. I also serve as the Vice-Chair of IEEE Montreal Section.
I obtained my Ph.D. degree from Integrated Systems for Information Processing (ISIP) lab at McGill University. Before joining BU, I worked at Octasic Inc as a 5G PHY algorithm developer.
The focus of my postdoctoral research is on the recent emerging universal decoder algorithms and their implementations, for beyond 5G. My Ph.D. research features algorithms and implementations of polar codes, the newest coding scheme of the 5G wireless communications standard.
A mix of academic, professional and personal briefs on the most recent milestones.
The extended version of our ICASSP 2021 paper on GRAND is now available as a preprint here.
I will be giving a talk titled "High-Throughput does not Compromise Energy Efficiency: New Algorithms and Implementations for 5G Polar Codes" on May 6, 2021 4 PM EDT. Register here.
Titled "Algorithms and Implementations for Practical and Energy-Efficient Polar Decoders" my thesis is now available at McGill Library Catalogue.
I am thrilled to announce that I was elected for the Vice-Chair role for the IEEE Montreal Section Executive Committee. Exciting days ahead!
I am recently recruited as a DSP Algorithm Developer for Octasic Inc. I will be working on 5G Wireless Protocol Systems from Matlab reference models to optimized embedded C/ASM implementations.
Our paper titled "Practical Dynamic SC-Flip Decoders: Algorithm and Implementation" has been accepted in IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing and available on Early Access.
Our paper titled "High-Throughput VLSI Architecture for GRAND", first-authored by Dr. Syed Mohsin Abbas, has been accepted in IEEE International Workshop on Signal Processing Systems (SiPS) 2020 Virtual Conference.
I will be participating at ICC 2020 as an author of an accepted paper. The conference will be performed virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
