 I am an Assistant Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of California Santa Cruz (UCSC). Before joining UCSC in July 2020, I have been an Assistant Professor at the University of Idaho (August 2016 - June 2020), a Senior Research Scientist (July 2014 - June 2016), a Research Scientist (July 2012 - June 2014), a Postdoctoral Fellow (November 2009 - June 2012) in the Computer Electrical and Mathematical Sciences and Engineering Division at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), and a Postdoctoral Fellow (September 2008 - August 2009) at the University of British Columbia (UBC). 


I received my PhD from University of Montreal, Polytechnique Engineering School in 2008. My thesis was nominated for ``Best Thesis of the Year''.


I am a 2020 (2021 - 2026) NSF CAREER Awardee. During my appointment at UBC, I received the ``Fonds Quebecois de la recherche sur la nature et les technologies'' Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Grant for research on Cognitive Radio Networks.


I am a Senior Member of IEEE (2013 - present). I have been an Editor of IEEE Wireless Communications Letters (2014 - 2017) and  served as a Symposium Chair/Co-Chair of many IEEE flagship conferences in communication, signal processing, and networking.


My current research covers topics in wireless communications and networking including security and privacy of data networks, applying machine-learning techniques to design and optimize modern communication systems, information theory, and optical communication.
