Biography

I received my Master of Science (MS) from the University of Texas at Austin and my Bachelor of Engineering (BE) with High Distinction from the American University of Beirut, Lebanon in 2013. Before joining the graduate program at the University of Texas in 2015, I worked for a semiconductor startup as a systems engineer. I am currently pursuing my MS under the co-supervision of Prof. Jeffrey G. Andrews and Prof. Robert W. Heath Jr. My research interests include probabilistic modeling and analysis of wireless networks, optimization theory and data sciences, reliability theory and risk assessment, the physical layer and signal processing, and image processing.
