I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania, where I also obtained my PhD degree (Dec. 2016). I work in the GRASP lab under the supervision of Professor George J. Pappas. Areas of interest include control theory, optimization, and stochastic systems. In particular I've been recently working on control systems implemented over wireless channels. You will find more information about this in my research page and my publications page.
