About Me

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at Rice University where I am working with Rich Baraniuk. Before this, I spent two great years at the Machine Learning Department at Carnegie Mellon University where I worked with Aarti Singh.
I received my M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in 2010 and 2014 respectively from the University of Wisconsin - Madison, where I was advised by Rob Nowak and Stark Draper. Before that, I received my B. Tech in Electronics and Communication Engineering in 2008 from VIT University.
