  • Achievements include patents for apparatus and method for radio frequency tracking and acquisition. Patents for signal quality estimation for continuous phase modulation. Patents pending for efficient back-end channel matched filter.

    Patents pending for unified modulator for continuous phase modulation and phase-shift keying. Patents pending for coarse bin frequency synchronization in an Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing system. Patents pending for improved time tracking for a receiver with guard interval correlation for Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing signals.

    Design of algorithms for key functional blocks of commercial wireless modems for wireless communications systems such as Group Special Mobile, EDGE, DVB-H, ISDB-T, and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers 802.11. Design of successive cancellation algorithm for separating combined heart-rate data (containing both fetal and maternal heart beats). Research in analyzed non-ideal cancellation effects on the performance of successive interference cancelers (Signal, Image, Communications) for Code Division Multiple Access uplink, and devised improved linear and non-linear interference cancellation algorithms.

    Lead a team of Digital signal processing, software, and test engineers to develop, integrate, and test (including interoperability, field tests, and certification) the Group Special Mobile The Automated Meter Reading (adaptive multi-rate) feature.
