About Me

I am a researcher in the Department of Electrical Engineering at UCLA. I received my Ph.D. in electrical engineering from UCLA in December 2016; I am fortunate to have Prof. Lara Dolecek as an advisor. I am part of the LORIS Laboratory. I currently work with Lara Dolecek (UCLA EE) and Guy Van den Broeck (UCLA CS).

Before joining UCLA, I studied Electrical Engineering at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

My CV and my Google Scholar profile.

My dissertation, Algorithms and Coding Techniques for Reliable Data Management and Storage.

My thesis, Novel Coding Strategies for Multi-Level Non-Volatile Memories (Edward K. Rice Outstanding Masters Student Award, UCLA HSSEAS, Distinguished M.S. Thesis Award, UCLA EE Dept.).

Research Interests

I am broadly interested in problems related to machine learning, statistical inference, and information and coding theory. I often work on the analysis and design of algorithms that must operate on unreliable (incomplete, noisy, corrupted) data.

My approach to these problems involves tools from many disciplines: information theory, error-correcting codes, statistical inference, algorithms, combinatorics and optimization. Projects I have worked on include:
