EXPERIENCE Engineer at Qualcomm, San Diego July-Sep 2009 • Developed a realistic simulation model using Opnet Modeler for Network Traffic models from 3GPP and NGMN. • Dimensioned Back haul networks based on the latency and data rates. • Formulated regression equations for latency of HTTP pages against data rates using Matlab. • Developed business cases for emerging technologies like Multicarrier HSPA through my simulations.
Teaching Assistant at University of Pittsburgh Jan-Dec 2009 • Assisted Students enrolled in Computer Networks with packet sniffing tools like Wireshark. • Guided students in Network Protocol Simulations projects in C/C++.
ACADEMIC PROJECTS Real Time Embedded Systems Project Feb, 2010 • Built a Temperature Sensor System embedded application using MicroC OS II (RTOS) on Altera DE2 board. • Interfaced a thermistor and keypad for sensing the ambient temperature and user input respectively. • Nios II processor was used to calculate the average temperature for user selected granularity. • Interfaced an Oscilloscope and LCD display to display the analog and digital temperature outputs respectively. Piezoelectric Igniter based energy harvesting for Wireless Sensors Networks Dec, 2009 • Investigated energy harvesting technologies for WSNs • Developed a Piezoelectric pushbutton based energy generator for powering a RF Transmitter. Linux Kernel programming Oct, 2009 • Implemented kernel space system calls and user space functions or a simple local message application. • Used linked lists in the Kernel memory space for storing the messages. • Used shell scripts to add a lot of messages quickly into the system for testing the developed application. Implementation and performance evaluation of VoIP in 802.11b WLAN Apr, 2009 • Benchmarked the performance of VoIP and Streaming Video over 802.11b WLAN. • Measured Packet Delay Time and Jitter for different number of clients, background traffic and Signal strength. Transport layer and Routing layer network protocol simulations using C Nov, 2008 • Implemented a simple and reliable data transfer protocol using Go-back N scheme. • Implemented distributed asynchronous distance vector routing protocol. Network programming project based on IP Multicast Nov, 2008 • Designed and developed a peer to peer multicast chat application using c# socket programming. • The application allows users to join and leave a group and send text messages to all members of the group.
