About me

I am a Ph.D. candidate studying Electrical Engineering at Columbia University, under the supervision of Dr. Xiaofan Jiang. My current research focuses on the design of cyber-physical systems for energy efficiency in urban environments. I have done research both at Carnegie Mellon University with Dr. Natasa Miskov-Zivanov and Dr. Pulkit Grover, as well as at the University of Pennsylvania with Dr. Daniel D. Lee. Their guidance has led me to pursue my current interests in robotics, machine learning, and cyber-physical systems.


I completed my undergraduate and masters degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. I have participated in a variety of research projects, spanning computational biology, artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicles, and smart building applications.
