I am an Assistant Professor in the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Syracuse University.

Previously, I was a TRIPODS (Institute for Theoretical Foundations of Data Science) postdoctoral researcher at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst where I worked with Prof. Arya Mazumdar, and a postdoctoral fellow at Johns Hopkins University with Prof. Xin Li.

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Purdue University under the supervision of Prof. Elena Grigorescu.

I work on the foundations of data science and machine learning. In the past, I have thoroughly enjoyed working on some classical problems in lattices and error-correcting codes.

Research Interests:

  • Foundations of Machine Learning

  • Algorithms for Big Data

  • Error Correcting Codes & Lattices


  • Fall 2020: CIS 691 - Algorithms for Big Data

  • Spring 2021: CIS 473 - Automata & Complexity
