I received the B.Eng. degree from Hanoi University of Technology, Vietnam in 2002, the M.Sc. degree (with Graduate Thesis Award) and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Saskatchewan, Canada in 2004 and 2008, respectively, all in Electrical and Computer Engineering. From May 2008 to July 2010, I was at McGill University as a Postdoctoral Scholar under the prestigious Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Postdoctoral Fellowship. From August 2010 to July 2011, I was at McGill University as a Research Associate. Since August 2011, I have been with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), University of Akron, OH, USA where I am currently an Associate Professor. My research interests span the areas of signal processing and communication and information theories for wireless systems and networks, and network security. My work has been supported by US National Science Foundation, Office of Naval Research, Air Force Research Laboratory, and industry. I have served as an Editor for IEEE Transactions on Communications, a Senior Editor for IEEE Communications Letters, an Editor for IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, an Editor for IEEE Communications Letters, and an Editor for Elsevier Physical Communication. I also work as a consultant in the satellite industry. In particular, my recent projects with Linquest Corporation focus on SATCOM operational resiliency. I am also currently serving as the ABET coordinator of the ECE department.
