Brief Bio

I am currently an assistant professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at San Diego State University. Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher in Computer Science and Engineering Department at University of California,San Diego. I obtained my PhD degree from the same university in March 2015. My advisor was Prof. Tajana Rosing. I was a member of System Energy Efficiency Lab (Seelab). My research interests are context aware cyber-physical systems, energy efficient systems, embedded devices and the Internet of Things.

You can reach me at my SDSU email and view the details of my projects on my LinkedIn page. I worked in several large-scale research centers, including Multi Scale Systems Center (MuSyC), TerraSwarm Research Center, Center for Networked Systems (CNS) and the collaborators of my projects include Google, Microsoft, Panasonic, Intel, IBM.
