Welcome

I am a Post Doctoral Associate at the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS) at MIT hosted by Prof. Ali Jadbabaie. I obtained my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where I worked with Prof. Angelia Nedich and Prof. Alex Olshevksy.
