I am an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Columbia University. I am also an affiliated member of the Institute for Data Sciences and Engineering (IDSE) at Columbia. Here is my CV.


I received my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Duke University, where I worked with Lawrence Carin. I was then a post-doc in the Computer Science departments at Princeton University with David Blei and UC Berkeley with Michael Jordan.
