I am an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of California San Diego. Prior to joining UCSD in 2017 as an Assistant Professor, I was with the University of Colorado Boulder as an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering. Between 2011 and 2014, I was a postdoctoral researcher with the Coordinate Science Lab at UIUC under the supervision of Prof. Cedric Langbort, and Prof. Olgica Milenkovic, and with Georgia Tech under the supervision of Jeff Shamma. In 2018, I was honored to receive the American Control Council’s Donald P. Eckman Award

In addition to my academic interests, I am broadly interested in musicbiking, and theology.
