About Me

Bula!

I am originally from the beautiful islands of Fiji. After growing up in Fiji, studying in Mokpo, South Korea, Zurich, Switzerland, and Trento, Italy, I currently live and work in the beautiful city of Chicago, USA.

Education

Before joining Amber Agriculture in Chicago as a Wireless Systems Engineer, I obtained my Ph.D. in Information and Communication Technology from the University of Trento, Italy under the supervision of Dr. Amy L. Murphy. I was also a member of D3S group and E3DA in the University of Trento and Bruno Kessler Foundation, respectively. My research involved the design and optimization of novel cross-layer MAC and Routing protocols for Ultra-Low-Power Wake-up Radios to enable Low Energy Internet of Things (LE-IoT).

Besides all this fancy technology, conceptual and theoretical work I like to be offline in nature, photographing, traveling, and doing sports.
