I am an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Princeton University. I am a member of the Information Sciences and Systems group.
Prior to joining Princeton in Spring 2017, I was a postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Statistics at Stanford University supervised by Prof. Emmanuel Candès. I completed my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University in Fall 2014, under the supervision of Prof. Andrea Goldsmith.
Research areas: convex and nonconvex optimization, high-dimensional structured estimation, statistical learning, information theory, and statistical signal processing.
Openings: I'm looking for highly motivated students / postdocs with strong mathematical background and interest in the general areas of mathematical optimization, high-dimensional statistics, and machine learning. Please send me your CV if you are interested.
