My areas of interest span communications, control, and signal processing. Within that range, my focus is on the communications theory side, particularly in the areas of wireless and information theory. Within information theory, my main interest is in developing the conceptual tools needed to understand feedback, interaction, delay, reliability, and complexity. To that end, I am interested in decentralized control systems as they provide well understood mathematical models that do not mesh with the classical notions from information theory. They also tell us why delay and cooperation areimportant. On the wireless communication side, I was interested in power consumption and now am mostly interested in how multi-scale heterogenous wireless systems can coexist peacefully. Cognitive radio and wireless spectrum sharing are of particular interest.
My research sits within the BLISS center, where we study the foundations of information, inference, statistics, systems, and signal processing.
Before joining the Berkeley faculty, I spent some time at the startup Enuvis, Inc. where I was on the theoretical/algorithmic side of a team that developed new techniques for GPS detection in very low SNR environments (such as those encountered indoors in urban areas). Before that, I was a graduate student at MIT studying Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (Course 6 in MIT-speak) and was based in the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems under Prof. Sanjoy Mitter. My research interests there started in machine understanding but shifted toward the intersection of control and information theory. I did my undergraduate work in EECS here at the University of California at Berkeley.
I served as the Treasurer for the IEEE Information Theory Society from 2007-2009 and am currently the faculty adviser for the Berkeley chapter of Eta Kappa Nu.
