I am an Assistant Professor at Purdue ECE. I am also affiliated with the Center for Innovation in Control, Optimization, and Networks (ICON). Before joining Purdue, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at University of California, Berkeley, working with Prof. Kameshwar Poolla and Prof. Pravin Varaiya. I completed my Ph.D. in Computational and Mathematical Engineering at Stanford University in January 2018, under the supervision of Prof. Ram Rajagopal.
