About Me

I am a 4th year PhD candidate in the ECSE Department at RPI, working under the supervision of Prof. Ali Tajer. My research background is in the general areas of theoretical statistical learning and inference over networks. My research leverages the tools from information theory, statistics, graph theory, statistical learning, signal processing, and optimization.

I also spent Fall 2018 and Summer 2019 as a research intern working with Dr. James Kozloski in Computational Neuroscience and Brain Modeling group at IBM Research.
