About me

I am an Assistant Professor at Louisiana Tech University. Before joining Louisiana Tech, I was a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University.

My research interests include information theory, distributed consensus, blockchain, and machine learning.

I am organizing ECE research seminars. If you are interested in giving a talk, please let me know.

Check out our recent paper, where an open problem of Byzantine agreement is solved using coding theory and graph theory.

Check out some of our animated videos for STEM education and outreach.
