- I'm a Lecturer in the EECS department at UC Berkeley, and I'm teaching the new class EE16a.
- I recently finished my PhD in EECS at Berkeley as well, and was fortunate to have Anant Sahai as my advisor.
- Before Berkeley, I completed my SB in EECS at
MIT, and before that I was as at Fergusson College in Pune, India.

My dissertation focused on the fundamental nature of information flows and bottlenecks in systems. I'm also interested in protocols that best allow us to exploit this nature. I'm curious about a lot of other things too, like the Internet of Things, crowdsourcing, spectrum sharing and more. We should talk sometime :).

I've had the good fortune of working with
George Verghese's group group at MIT as well as the
at UC Berkeley.
I've been heavily involved with the
and WICSE at Berkeley,
both of which are great communities. Come join us!
I was also involved in starting up EECSPeers. Feel free to reach out to me anytime to talk.
From January to June 2009, I taught computer science in Accra, Ghana at
MEST. Here are some
