I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Industrial Engineering at Purdue University. I received my PhD in August 2014 from the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). At UIUC, my advisors were Prof. Negar Kiyavash and Prof. Todd Coleman.

My research involves identifying, modeling, and controlling (stochastic) interactions between agents in a network. I am broadly interested in information theory, network science, algorithms, and statistics with applications in neuroscience, social networks, and biomedical science.
