Short Bio

I received my PhD in Computer Science and Engineering from University of New South Wales (UNSW) for the thesis entitled “Dynamic Adaptation of HTTP-based Video Streaming Using Markov Decision Process”. I received the Australian Postgraduate Scholarship Award (APA) as well as NICTA’s Research Project Scholarship Award (NRPA) for the duration of my PhD. These allowed me to work in top ranked research groups at UNSW and NICTA (Data61-CSIRO). I also had a chance to visit the Georgia Tech Institute and CICSO in the United states as visiting scholar and collaborate in high profile research projects.

After completing my PhD, I have worked as Researcher and Lecturer at multiple universities including UNSW, Victoria University, Federation University, the University of Sunshine Coast and the CQUniversity. I worked on multiple research projects mainly related to the quality optimization of video streaming on mobile networks as well as emerging technologies such as unmanned areal vehicles (UAVs) well known as drones. I have published numerous papers and articles including a top ranked journal, IEEE Transaction on Multimedia, and high ranked conferences such as INFOCOMGLOBCOMACMICC, and etc. I worked as Discipline Leader of Mobile and Computing Apps at CQUniversity for three years and introduced multiple new courses to the CQUniversity’s curriculum. While working on research projects to build new technologies, I follow my main passion which is delivering my knowledge and skills to our young students at CQU. I teach and coordinate multiple units each term including Mobile Apps Development, Game Development, Web-based Application development, Artificial Intelligence, and etc.

My current research focus is on the service provisioning opportunities and limitations of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for civilian purposes, and optimal usage of UAVs as mobile communication infrastructure. Other research topics that I have interest in include Machine Learning, Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence, Emerging Technologies and Mobile Networking protocols.
