About Me

I am a PhD candidate in the Electrical Engineering Department at University of Southern California. I am working with my advisor, Prof. Salman Avestimehr, on interesting problems in information theory and distributed computing.

I received my B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from NYU in 2011, and my M.Sc. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from USC in 2016.
