My Name is Abdul R. Yarali. I received my B.S., MS, and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Florida, The George Washington University, Virginia Polytechnic Institute, and State University, respectively. Following my graduation, I have worked chiefly in the wireless mobile communications industry field as a technical advisor, and engineering director, and now as a professor at Murray State University (MSU), Murray, KY. While in the wireless industry, as the project leader, I have led research and engineering teams working on location, completing numerous contracts in wireless mobile communications systems design, implementation, and optimization for leading telecommunications companies such as AT&T, NORTEL, and Sprint PCS in the U.S. I have been a faculty member at the School of Engineering and Telecommunications Systems Management (TSM) and Cybersecurity and Network Management (CNM) program at Murray State University since 2003, where I have developed a wireless option program for undergraduate students. My interest continues to be focused on higher generations of wireless mobile communications systems, small space satellites, IoT, cybersecurity, and smart grid infrastructures.  I have presented articles, lectures, and keynote talks in mobile communications networking in North America, Asia, the Middle East, Australia, and Europe. In addition, I have served as a participant, panelist, chair, and organizer for workshops and conferences on the integration of teaching and research, particularly in wireless communications, cybersecurity, and small satellites. I have been the author and editor of journals, magazines, and books in wireless communications, IoT, big data, sensors, cybersecurity and AI. I have been a co-investigator in several projects, including the GNSS project with the National Institute of Hometown Security (NIHS), tasked by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
