About me

Hello! Thanks for visiting my research website. I am a postdoc at USC working with Prof. Urbashi Mitra. I work on team decision problems where multiple agents, often with limited communication, sensing and computational power, collaborate to perform a given task. One of the main goals in my research has been to design optimal strategies in team decision problems motivated by applications in cyber-physical and biological systems. Prior to joining USC as a postdoc in September 2016, I did my PhD at University of Maryland, College Park, where I had the privilege of working with Prof. Nuno Martins.

Research Interests

  • Networked decision systems

  • Decentralized estimation, control and optimization

  • Applications of control and information theory in biology

  • Cyber-physical systems
