I do research in the areas of Internet of Things, smart and mobile devices, sensor networks and analysis of data from these and other networks using modern artificial intelligence technologies. I have also served as an expert witness in patent and other cases.

I am looking for outstanding Undergraduate, Masters, and Ph.D. students for research. Typically, I can consider Masters students for funding only after working together for a semester.

Brief bio: Postdoc (Stanford University), Ph.D. (University of Southern California), Masters and Bachelors (Massachusetts Institute of Technology).
