About MeI am an assistant professor in the Department of Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin. Prior to joining UT, I was a faculty member in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). I am an IEEE senior member and a recipient of the Innovation Fellowship from Swartz Center for Entrepreneurship at CMU. My research interests include multi-agent optimization and machine learning in networked cyber-physical systems, including smart grid-interactive buildings, power grid, and electrified transportation systems. I received my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from CMU.
