I received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering and
computer science in 1996 from the University of Novi Sad, Serbia, and the
M.S and Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Wireless Information
Network Laboratory (WINLAB), Rutgers University, USA, in 2000 and 2004,
respectively. Since 2000 I have been with Bell Labs, where I have been
involved in the next generation wireless systems research. My research
interests include analysis, design, and experimental evaluation of radio
access solutions. More recently I have been focusing on 5G radio access for
massive IoT and cyber-physical systems, mMTC and URLLC. I am currently
managing research work at five international Nokia Bell Labs locations. I
received the Bell Labs Fellow award in 2017.
I teach and mentor students at the University of Novi
Sad, covering communication networks, signal processing and deep learning. I
taught a number of courses, including at Columbia University, and held
numerous technical workshops around the world. I authored over 50
peer-reviewed publications and numerous patents granted and pending.
