I am an assistant professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) since Jan 2016. I earned my Ph.D. in ECE with a minor in Applied Mathematics from Cornell University in Jan 2014. Before joining JHU, I was a postdoctoral scholar at the Center for the Mathematics of Information (CMI) in the Computational and Mathematical Sciences (CMS) department at Caltech from 2013 to 2015.

I am interested in networked dynamics and distributed systems, as well as their applications in engineering and science. I use tools from control, dynamical systems and optimization to describe the global behavior of these networks and how they can be modified to meet specific engineering requirements. While my interest expands many areas such as data, social and biological networks, my main target area today is  electric power grids.
