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 ECE Department at UC Davis. I received a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Cornell in 2001.

My research interests include sequential decision theory, stochastic optimization, machine learning, and algorithmic theory with applications in infrastructure, communications, and social-economic networks.

I am a Fellow of IEEE, a Marie SkÅ‚odowska-Curie Fellow of the European Union’s Horizon-2020 research and innovation program, and a Jubilee Chair Professor of Chalmers University during my 2018-2019 sabbatical leave. 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.
