I am an Assistant Professor with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of California San Diego. My research interest is in the broad area of systems and controls. In particular, I am interested in various theoretical aspects of networked control systems including:

  • applied probability theory,
  • dynamics over random networks,
  • distributed computation and optimization, and
  • population dynamics and game theory.

Academic Background

I received my Ph.D in the Industrial Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under supervision of Professor Angelia Nedich in 2011. My Ph.D. thesis was on the study of products of random stochastic matrices and distributed averaging and it is available here. From 2012 to 2013, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Coordinated Science Lab (CSL) and from 2013 to 2014, I was postdoctoral researcher with the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech.

From 2014, I have been an Assistant Professor with the Department of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder (I have been on a leave of absence from CU-Boulder from July 2017).

Prospective Students

We are always looking for motivated graduate students who are enthusiastic about applied Mathematics and if you have a strong background in Mathematics, I would highly recommend applying for our graduate program. Please, consult the department’s graduate admission website for more information on the process.
