Research Focus

Next-generation wireless communications, artificial intelligence, embedded systems, wireless security

About

My research interests are the design and experimental evaluation of next-generation wireless systems for the Internet of Things (IoT) and 5/6G communications.

My technical expertise includes (i) FPGA-level embedded wireless system design; (ii) machine learning algorithms and frameworks; (iii) wireless communication standards and architectures; (iv) software-defined radio design and development.

I have been passionate about computers since a long time ago. I am a Linux user since 2000. I strongly believe in open source and sharing ideas with others. I am always open to collaboration — please contact me if you want to collaborate!

I am a member of the Roux Institute and the Institute for the Wireless Internet of Things at Northeastern University.

RFDataFactory: Categorized and Searchable Research Datasets

ECE Professor Kaushik Chowdhury (PI), William Lincoln Smith Chair Professor Tommaso Melodia (co-PI), and Assistant Professor Francesco Restuccia (co-PI) are leading a $1.8M NSF grant, in collaboration with Ashutosh Sabharwal from Rice University, for “RFDataFactory: Principled Dataset Generation, Sharing and Maintenance Tools for the Wireless Community.” RFDataFactory aims to make available categorized datasets suitable for research related to machine learning in 5G and beyond networks, and advance fundamental understanding and design tools for accessing, creating, sharing and storing wireless datasets.
