Rehmat Ullah

Ph.D. Candidate, Broadband Convergence Networks Laboratory , Department of Electronics and Computer Engineering, Hongik University, Republic of Korea.

In a nutshell

Welcome to my website. I received my B.S and M.S degrees (major in Wireless Communications and Networks) in Computer Science from COMSATS University Islamabad, Pakistan in 2013 and 2016 respectively. I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Electronics and Computer Engineering at Hongik University, South Korea. I am fortunate to work under the supervision of Professor Dr. Byung-Seo Kim . My major interests are in the field of information-centric networking (ICN) specifically mobile/wireless contentcentric/named data networking (CCN/NDN), edge computing, the Internet of Things (IoT), 5G and the future Internet architectures.
Moreover, I am an ACM Student Member and serves as a regular reviewer for the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications, the IEEE Wireless Communications Magazine, the IEEE Communications Magazine, Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies, Future Generation Computer Systems Journal (Elsevier), and the IEEE Access Journal. I also served as a reviewer and/or TPC for various international conferences and workshops including ACM MobiHoc (Los Angeles, USA), IEEE CCNC (Las Vegas, USA), VTC2018-Spring (Porto, Portugal), and SIGCSE 2019 (Special Sessions: Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA).
