I am a third year doctoral student in Electrical and Systems Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. I work under the direction of Alejandro Ribeiro in the area of statistical signal processing, in particular distributed online learning and stochastic optimization. My current projects are about developing new algorithms for dynamic signal processing in Big Data and dynamic robotic network settings using tools from statistical learning theory and stochastic optimization. I am also about half-way done with a Master's degree in Statistics from Wharton.
I am a participant in the Science, Mathematics, and Research for Transformation (SMART) Scholarship program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense. My sponsoring facility is the U.S. Army Research Laboratory’s Computation and Information Sciences Directorate, where I collaborate with Brian Sadler, Ethan Stump, and Jon Fink.
Before coming to Philadelphia, I had some wonderful research experiences at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory with Alma Wickenden and William Nothwang, and as an undergraduate in the Mathematics Department at Washington University in St. Louis (WashU) under the guidance of Renato Feres. I completed both my BS and MS at WashU in Mathematics/Systems Science and Mathematics, respectively, in 2011 and 2012.
