The broad research interest lies in next generation of wireless networks 5G and beyond 5G. Current research topics includes device-to-device communications, resource allocation and optimization problems, and network selection strategies.
• Feasibility and resource management for Device-to-Device (D2D) multicast communication in underlay cellular networks.
• Modelling and simulation of sum-rate maximization problems in D2D-multicast communication.
• Characterized the sum-rate behaviour of different underlay and overlay D2D networks
• Analysed the trade-off between Energy efficiency and Spectral efficiency in D2D multicast communications.
• Designed personalized handover schemes for seamless roaming in heterogeneous wireless network.
