Ray Model For Coverage Predictions Of Rural Mobile Communications Over Various Zones Of South India'. -Comparison of radio measurements with prediction methods for diverse terrain conditions to identify the communication schemes that are most suitable for rural zones of south India. (june '07-july '07) Interned with Net Access India (Part Of Murugappa Group)-Gained exposure to the deployment of Wireless Network Technology and the proper implementation/ maintenance of Wi-Fi,Wi-Max networks,intranets and other Networking infrastructure. -Designing High Performance Enterprise Wi-Fi Networks. -Ways to increase the capacity of WLANS in a Dense Access Point environment. (june'08-august '08) RESEARCH EXPERIENCE • Volunteered as a research assistant for a doctoral student and studied The Capacity Of MIMO Channels With Data Aided Channel Estimation. (july '07-august '07) • Built a wireless network that extends existing wired ethernet college network over one floor of the under graduate dorm: -Installed Wireless Access Points -Configured Adapters -Configured Ad-Hoc WLAN (august '08)-MIT Chennai • Designed an original multiple access scheme that meets the research targets of 4G cellular technology. It performs a Variable Spread of input data dictated by the number of users in a channel,while maintaining the same data rate of other fourth generation schemes by exploiting the orthogonality properties of the IFFT. Presented results in a paper titled 'Advent 4GMA' at IEEE student symposium. URL: (august ‘07 – march ’08) Final Year project:Designing a Multi-Rate Broadcast Scheme (using Super Position Turbo-TCM) for Wireless Broadband channels. (january '08 -till date)

Additional Project at Anna University–K B Chandrasekhar Research Center - development of an infrastructure standard that integrates Bio-Medical sensors and low power Radio Communications into an emergency care setting. Physical layer design of a Wireless Communication Substrate for medical devices that addresses Ad-Hoc network formation. -Setting up an Ad hoc network testbed in the MIT campus (till date) Research interests
