About me


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Industrial and System Engineering at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. From April 2016 to May 2017, I was a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Princeton University and WINLAB. I received my Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on December 2015. My research plan involves the understanding of complex social, communication, and distributed networks via the development of a research program that utilizes control and game theory, applied mathematics, and optimization theory.
