Welcome to my webpage; it is under construction.
I am a doctoral candidate in the Department of Electrical & Systems Engineering at the University of Pennsylvnia working with Professors George Pappas and Ali Jadbabaie . I'm affiliated with the GRASP Lab and the Precise Center. I received my Bachelors of Science in Mathematics (Summa cum laude) from GWU. My research is in the area of information diffusion and epidemic control in networks and robust estimation over networks. I'm a Fellow of the Ford Foundation and a Fontaine Scholar at the University of Pennsylvania.
Diffusion in Networks
Part of my work studies spreading processes in networks and strategies to control such processes over networks. Primary tools used in this work include graph theory and optimization. Continue Reading »
Rethinking redundancy over networks
Motivated by systems design, particularly with applications to power networks on aircrafts and miniature devices, this work advocates a paradigm shift by presenting a novel framework for redundancy over networks. You can read more about this work here »

Motivated by applications, in brief, my work involves understanding the interplay of networks, dynamics and processes over networks; then seeking efficient control strategies to optimize network performance. Some of my past work explored notions of reputation in systems, and part of my current work aims to present resilient and robust design schemes in response to potential failures and attacks on networked systems.
