I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am being co-advised by Carolyn Beck and Angelia Nedić.

Recent Awards/Honors:

Research Interests:

  • Mathematical modeling of dynamic networked systems, e.g. epidemiological, biological, economic systems, social networks, etc.
  • Stability analysis, control, and identifiability of such systems
  • Model reduction of dynamic systems via balanced truncation, singular perturbation approximation, and clustering
  • Biological applications of control theory
