Research Interests

About Me

I am a first-year Ph.D. student in EECS at UC Berkeley, where I am fortunate to be advised by Professor Somayeh Sojoudi. My research interests lie at the intersection of optimization, machine learning and control theory. More specifically, I hope to leverage tools from optimization and apply them to solve problems within the areas of machine learning and control.

Previously, I received my undergraduate degree from Imperial College London, where I completed the 4-year integrated MEng. degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. While at Imperial, I had the opportunity to work on a research project within the Control and Power (CAP) Research Group in Imperial College London, under supervision of Professor Alessandro Astolfi and Dr. Giordano Scarciotti. This was an independent project on model reduction - a field wherein various mathematical techniques have been developed to produce a simplified mathematical description of an already existing large-order dynamical system. Furthermore, I carried out my MEng. thesis project under supervision of Professor Patrick Naylor in the Speech and Audio Processing (SAP) Laboratory at Imperial College London. This project was focused on the research domain of speaker diarization.
