Short Bio

I am an assistant professor at the ECE Department at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT). I was an associate research scholar at the EE Department at Princeton University (2012-2013) and a postdoc at the EECS department at the University of California, Berkeley (2010-2011). I received my Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Texas A&M University, College Station, in 2009. During Summer 2006, I was an intern at the Mathematics of Communication Research Department at Bell Labs. I was awarded the Charlie S. Korban award for outstanding graduate student, and the Texas Telecommunication Engineering Consortium (TXTEC) Graduate Fellowship. My research interests lie in the area of communications with a focus on network coding, distributed data storage and information-theoretic security.

Research Interests

  • Distributed storage systems

  • Information theoretic security

  • Network coding

  • Wireless networks
