About Me

I joined the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at The University of Texas at Austin as an Assistant Professor of Instruction in the Spring semester 2019. In this position, I will be focusing on teaching and creating innovative learning experiences for ECE students. I am happy to be back in Texas and in particular at UT!

Previously, I had been a faculty member in the Department of Electrical Engineering at San Jose State University as an Assistant Professor since the Fall semester 2015. My major areas of research there were mobile and wireless networks, distributed algorithms, and communication theory.

Before SJSU, I spent two years as a Postdoctoral Fellow at The University of Texas at Austin working under Prof. Christine Julien and Prof. Sriram Vishwanath as part of the Wireless Networking and Communications Group and the Mobile and Pervasive Computing Group. My work at UT Austin included system-wide implementation of distributed wireless algorithms using the Pharos testbed while overseeing undergraduate research projects and supporting graduate research efforts.

I received my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Rice University (May 2013) working under Dr. Ashutosh Sabharwal as part of the Center for Multimedia Communications. I received my Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Electrical Engineering from The University of Texas at El Paso in 2004 and 2006, respectively.
