I am an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Wayne State University. I am the director of the Information Processing Lab, where we study information theory and signal processing with emphasis on machine learning, wireless communication, and sensor fusion in wireless networks.

My Curriculum Vitae, ResearchGate profile, and Google Scholar profile.

Prospective graduate students: I am looking for a talented Ph.D. student to join my research group for the 2017-2018 academic year. If you are interested, email me a CV, including relevant coursework, and a short cover letter describing your research ambitions. I seek indepentent, motivated students with expertise in linear algebra, probability, and optimization. I particularly encourage students of color, women, and students from other underrepresented groups to apply.

I am also interested in working with graduate and undergraduate students for short-term directed study for the Winter 2016 semseter. Please contact me if you are interested.
