About Me

I am no longer at Boston University.  I am currently working at Systems & Technology Research.  A new page is coming soon. For now, please refers to my Linkedin account.

Bio:

I am currently a postdoc in the Information Sciences and Systems Lab at Boston University, ECE Department . I received a BS, MS and PhD in Electrical Engineering from Boston University in 2007, 2010 and 2013. My thesis advisors were Prof. Venkatesh Saligrama and Prof. David Castanon.

My current research deals with reducing cost in different aspects of machine learning.  My other areas of interest are:
- supervised, semi-supervised and unsupervised machine learning: theory and algorithms
- statistical signal processing in image reconstruction and inverse problems
- optimization methods

In the past, I worked on automated alignment and surface characterization in concentrated solar power dish systems at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
