Lenny joined UCaN lab in summer 2022 and is currently a senior majoring in electrical engineering. His project is focused on the development of a data collection testbed for wireless network performance, and he is using this testbed to evaluate the impact of data offloading in ultra-dense wireless networks. Lenny served in the United States Marine Corps for 8 years and is an executive board member of the UMass Boston Student Veterans Center, where they provide advice, tutoring and a space where veterans can go be themselves and talk about anything without judgement. In his off time, he enjoys going to the gym, scuba diving, surfing, and snowboarding.
Victoria joined UCaN lab in summer 2022 and is a computer engineering major in her senior year. She is currently working in UCaN lab as an undergraduate research fellow through UMB's college of science and mathematics, and her project is focused on the evaluation of an opportunistic relay architecture for ultra-dense wireless networks. Victoria is an International student from Venezuela who is a member of the UMB Casa Lantinx student organization club. In her free time, she enjoys reading thrillers books and watching baseball games
Humza received his bachelor’s degree in computer engineering from UMASS Boston in 2022 and is currently employed as an embedded software engineer at Silicon Labs.

Jasmine joined UCAN Lab as a computer science student at UMass Boston. She worked in the lab from Summer 2018 through Fall 2019. Her projects focused on analysis of typical accelerations and orientations of mobile electronic devices, and how these, combined with a device’s currently running applications, can impact the connection to wireless networks.
John Carlo Laude
John received his bachelor’s degree in computer engineering from UMASS Boston in 2021. He joined UCaN lab in the Spring semester of 2020. He also worked at the UMass Boston IT service desk and participates in a variety of cultural activities. John's research project involveed modeling visible light communication systems with the GNU radio software defined radio toolbox in order to create an open source library/repository for other researchers to use.
Jason received his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from UMASS Boston in 2019. He is currently employed as a Field Engineer for Eversource. He was part of UCaNLab from Spring of 2018 and his work focused on development of a visible light communication (VLC) system with Internet connectivity as well as an open source library for those who are new to optical communication.
Max joined the UCAN Lab team from UMass Boston’s electrical engineering program. Max received a BA in English with a minor in Mathematics from Suffolk University in 2011, before starting an eclectic career spanning medical education, technical writing, and media production. He returned to school to complete a BS in electrical engineering and worked in UCaN lab from Summer 2019 until Summer 2020. His project focused on characterization of various optical wireless front end hardware to understand nonlinearities in the optical conversion.
Augustus received his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from UMASS Boston in 2021. He joined UCAN Lab in Spring 2020 as an undergraduate research fellow through UMB's college of science and mathematics.. His project involved modeling visible light communications systems within the GNURadio software defined radio toolbox in order to create an open source library for other researchers to model their own visible light communications systems.
Myles joined UCAN Lab from UMass Boston’s electrical engineering program as a Freshman in the Spring semester of 2018. He worked on a variety of projects during his 4 year tenure in UCaN lab, including the development of a testbed based on distributed Raspberry Pi microcontrollers that allows for analysis of Wi-Fi Traffic He also used this testbed to evaluate the broader impacts of data offloading to Optical Wireless Communication cells.
Shagun joined UCaN lab in the Spring of 2020 as a graduate student in the UMass Boston Computer Science department. Her project focused on analysis of the diverse and time varying characteristics of wireless devices. This analysis aims to study the device usage and mobility in ultradense wireless networks in order to evaluate accurate values and representations of the realistic systems as compared to the statistical analysis.
