I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of California, Riverside.

Prior to joining UC Riverside, I was a postdoctoral research associate in the DSP group at Rice University. Before that I briefly worked as a Research Engineer at Samsung Research America, Dallas. I received my Ph.D. at the Georgia Institute of Technology under the supervision of Justin Romberg.

My research interests broadly lie in the areas of information processing and computational sensing with applications in signal processing, machine learning, and computational imaging. I design algorithms to learn and exploit latent signal structures for fast and efficient information recovery. Recently, I have been working on some projects in computational imaging and the co-design of sensing hardware and information recovery algorithms.
