Welcome to my website!


I am an Electrical (Systems) Engineer, researcher, and technology enthusiast. Currently, I am working towards a PhD degree in Electrical Engineering at New York University (NYU) under the supervision of Prof. Quanyan Zhu. I am an Associate Director of the Laboratory for Agile and Resilient Complex Systems (LARX) and a member of the Center for Cyber Security (CCS) at NYU.

My research interests are in the security and resilience of smart connected communities and critical infrastructure systems. The focus is on cross-layer design of models, services, and mechanisms for systems and networks that comprise of networked cyber-physical systems (CPS), wireless communication systems, cloud computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT).
