Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering

I received my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Rice University in 2020. My research interests include the design and experimental analysis of architectures, protocols, and applications for next-generation wireless communication and sensing systems with a focus on millimeter-wave and terahertz networks, Internet of Things, robotic wireless networks, and wireless security. On these topics, my lab’s research spans from theoretical analysis and modeling to hardware implementations and experimental evaluations.

I started as an Assistant Professor at Princeton as of Spring 2021. If you are interested in working with me, please follow the Princeton application process and contact me. If you are already at Princeton, please send me an email and we can arrange a time to meet.
