I joined the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Washington in 2015. My research interests are in the area of cyberphysical and power systems, spanning from control/optimization, statistics and machine learning to power electronics. If you are interested in any of these, Iā€™m sure we can find things to chat about. My CV is here.

I completed my PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at UC Berkeley in 2013, where I worked with David Tse and my thesis is here. I was a postdoc at Stanford, jointly hosted by Ramesh Johari and Ram Rajagopal. I received my undergraduate degree in Engineering Science (Electrical Option) from the University of Toronto.
