Research Projects

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.
