Graduate Research Assistant

Confidential, CA


  • Designed and Implemented different MAC protocols using directional antenna for WLAN networks using OPNET ( C/C++ programming ) to show the enhancement of bit error rate and energy consumption between different directional antenna MAC protocols and 802.11 protocol.
  • Designed and implemented a smart TXOP allocation algorithm based on dynamic features of the networks, which enhanced the video quality over error - prone wireless networks when pre-encoded compressed Confidential video on IEEE 802.11e HCCA based MAC layer is transmitted.
  • Performance evaluation is done using Network Simulator NS 2.34( C/C++, Perl programming ) .
  • Developed a smart queuing method based on packet priorities, user priorities, time to live (TTL) for packets and buffer size for dynamic wireless networks.
  • Enhancement evaluation is done using Network Simulator NS 2.32 (C/C++ programming ) .
  • Study and research on the performance of Confidential ( AVC / SVC ) video compression standard, and behavioral comparison with Confidential -4.
  • Study and research on the performance of the new video compression standard, HEVC (H.265), and comparison with previous video compression standards.

Software Trainee Engineer



  • Work as a trainee to learn about Siemens SIAMATIC Step 7 and the latest methods of using it in industry.
  • Designing and implementing a high speed protocol with OPNET, based on 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g.
  • Conducting a 3- student group, to completely implement a wireless ad-hoc network for embedded systems.
  • This project took one semester to be implemented for TinyOS TelosB.
  • NesC programming language was used for this project.
  • Using Confidential and HEVC ( H.265) Codec, to compare the performance of these two video compression standards for the new and different features of each one.
  • Encoded and decoded video sequences for and compared based on their PSNRs and VQMs.
  • A complete study of the standards were needed which includes encoding methods, error concealment method and new features of HEVC in comparison with Confidential .
  • Implemented complete Confidential video compression standard Codec and Confidential standard.
  • Other Compression techniques such as Confidential -2 and Confidential were studied and compared with Confidential and Confidential .
  • Implemented several image processing methods and tools with MATLAB such as Image enhancement and noise removal Edge detection and Localization Histogram equalization and image registration
