Description: 
Dr. Rawat's research focuses on wireless communication networks, cyber physical systems and cyber security. His current research interests include design, analysis, and evaluation of cognitive radio networks, vehicular ad-hoc networks, software defined networkswireless sensor networks, wireless mesh networks and cyber physical systems. His research interests also include information theory for wireless networks, signal processing for wireless communications network security, and research/project based education. Here you can find a list of my selected publications. 

Dr. Rawat's research is supported by GSU and U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) grants.
