I am a fifth year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at University of California, Santa Barbara. Prior to joining UCSB, I received my Bachelor and Masters degree of Engineering from the Technical University of Sofia, Bulgaria.
I am a member of the MOMENT lab at UCSB and I work under the supervision of Professor Elizabeth Belding.
My research focus is on wireless networks for infrastructure-challenged regions. In the past, I have worked on other projects related to wireless networking including monitoring, medium access control for 60 GHz networks and smart phones.
Most recently I worked on an exciting project at Microsoft Research and Microsoft Technology Policy Group. The goal of the project was twofold: on one hand, demonstrating feasibility of White Spaces networking for rural areas and on the other, enabling Dynamic Spectrum Access beyond the TV White Spaces.
