I graduated in May 2017 with a PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). At UIUC I was advised by Prof. Pierre Moulin in the Coordinated Sciences Laboratory (CSL).
I received my Master of Science degree in ECE from UIUC. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. At UNSW I graduated with the university medal (top student in Electrical and Telecommunications Engineering).
