Portrait of SaiDhiraj Amuru 

SaiDhiraj Amuru, Ph.D.
Virginia Tech

I am a researcher interested in design and analysis of wireless communication systems. In my research, I have used tools from statistical signal processing, optimization theory, statistical learning theory and stochastic geometry to develop optimal attack strategies against wireless networks across physical, MAC and network layers. Prior to my Ph.D., I was a modem engineer with Qualcomm where I worked on radio frequency drivers for the modem chipsets.
