I joined Cornell University in 2015 as a Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Prior to that, I was a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UC Davis from 2004 to 2015 and a system engineer with Aware., Inc. from 2001 to 2003. I received a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Cornell University in 2001.

My research interests include sequential decision theory and stochastic optimization in complex systems, machine learning, statistical inference, and algorithmic theory with applications in infrastructure networks, communication systems, and social economic networks.

I am a Fellow of IEEE. I received the 2010 IEEE Signal Processing Magazine Best Paper Award and the 2000 Young Author Best Paper Award from IEEE Signal Processing Society. While on the faculty of UC Davis, I held the title of UC Davis Chancellor’s Fellow and received the 2014 Outstanding Mid-Career Faculty Research Award and the 2008 Outstanding Junior Faculty Award from the UC Davis College of Engineering.
