Biographical Sketch

I joined Stony Brook University as an assistant professor in Aug 2014. I was an assistant professor at Temple University since 2010. In May 2010, I received my PhD in computer science working under the direction of Professor John A. Stankovic at the University of Virginia. My PhD dissertation is on Taming Networking Challenges with Feedback Control. Here is my CV.

My research is in the area of networked systems, with an emphasis on feedback control based design in cyber physical systems and sensor systems. I work on wireless network protocols, medical devices, first responder systems, and smart transportation systems. I am broadly interested in computer networks, distributed computing, networked information systems, sensor systems, and robotics.
