I am a fourth year graduate student being advised by Professor Jean Walrand working mainly on robust scheduling of various processing networks. Prior to joining Berkeley, I obtained my masters degree from EPFL , Switzerland, where I worked on Polar coding and Diversity-Multiplexing Tradeoff (DMT) of relay channels. My research interests are broadly in the area of queueing networks, applied probability, information theory, and signal processing. I was an intern in Bell labs in summer 2013 working with Mohammad Ali Maddah-Ali and Urs Niesen on online caching. I did internship in Qualcomm research in summer 2014. I am also working with Professor Kannan Ramchandran on phase retrieval.
