In Spring 2018, I started working for the Office of the Senior Vice Chancellor for Research at Pitt. My focus is to utilize data analysis techniques to perform a deep and meaningful analysis of the research landscape of Pitt.
In September 2017, I started working for the US. National Science Foundation Grant 1642949: “EARS: Collaborative Research: Automated Enforcement in Spectrum Sharing: Technical Challenges and Policy Considerations” My research tasks focus on:
- Providing support to graduate students in the development and analysis of agent-based models for the study of enforcement mechanisms
- Assisting with the development of conceptual models for centralized and distributed enforcement
Since January 2015, I have been working for the U.S. National Science Foundation Grant 1443978: “Virtualized Wireless Networks and Their Impact on Capacity Markets”. My research tasks have included:
- Developing an agent-based model for studying secondary spectrum markets
- Exploring applicable spectrum market configurations and mechanisms
- Studying the incentives that participants require for sharing in virtualized environments
- Finding applicable Policy and Economics frameworks.
From August 2013 until December 2014, I worked for the U.S. National Science Foundation Grant 1247546 “Techno-Economic Models of Secondary Spectrum Usage”. My responsibilities included:
- Investigating the limitations of spectrum fungibility.
- Modifying an existing spectrum trading tool by taking into account spectrum fungibility limitations.
- Analyzing the impact of the lack of spectrum fungibility on the viability of secondary spectrum markets.
- Defining a spectrum-related commodity that could add thickness to the market
- Studying the changes in the market viability results when including virtualization methods.
