About Me

I’m currently a software engineer at Applied Intuition, where I develop simulation and validation tools for autonomous vehicles! I previously worked on maps at Argo AI.

Prior to that, I was a post-doctoral fellow in Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University working with Professor Peter Steenkiste. I received my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the Viterbi School of Engineering at the University of Southern California. My advisor there was Professor Bhaskar Krishnamachari and I was a member of the Autonomous Networks Research Group (ANRG). My research interests are in the area of distributed systems, edge computing, connected vehicles, and the Internet of Things (IoT).

I earned my Bachelor of Engineering and Master of Engineering degrees in Electrical Engineering from The Cooper Union in New York, NY.
