I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science at Rutgers University. I am working with Professor Desheng Zhang. I am also a visiting student at MIT Media Lab working with Professor Alex 'Sandy' Pentland.

My research interests are broadly in the areas of Data Science, Cyber-Physical Systems, and Machine Learning. My current work is focused on human behavior driven urban systems and applications.

I will join the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Lehigh University as an Assistant Professor. I am looking for motivated students to work with me to make our cities smarter. Please send me your CV and anything else that can support you by email if you are interested.
