I am an assistant professor with the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE), Michigan State University (MSU)

My research is in the areas of machine learning, reinforcement learning, optimization, signal processing, sequential decision making, and risk, and their applications in autonomous networked systems, wireless communications, security and privacy, and system trustworthiness.

I also share common interest with my partner, Ioanna, in the area of urban information systems. To learn more about Ioanna’s research, click here.

Before joining MSU, I was a postdoctoral researcher with the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering, University of Pennsylvania, hosted jointly by Profs. George J. Pappas and Alejandro Ribeiro, and affiliated with GRASPAlelab, and PRECISE. Prior to that, I was a postdoctoral research associate with the Department of Operations Research and Financial Engineering (ORFE)Princeton University, hosted by Prof. Warren B. Powell, and affiliated with CASTLE Labs. I received the PhD degree in ECE from Rutgers University, where I worked with Prof. Athina P. Petropulu.


Open Positions: I am looking for new PhD students and postdocs to work on problems in machine/reinforcement learning and stochastic optimization/control, with applications in the broad area of wireless autonomy, and with emphasis on robustness and trustworthiness. If interested in working with me, send me an email including your CV and a short, casual description of your work and research interests.
