I am an Assistant Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University at Albany, State University of New York (SUNY). Before that, I was a postdoctoral research associate with the Coordinated Science Laboratory (CSL) at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). I worked with Maxim Raginsky on problems related to decision making in uncertain environments. I received my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in 2014 from the University of Southern California (USC) under the supervision of Urbashi Mitra. I also received my MSc in Electrical Engineering in 2010 from USC and my undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering & Informatics in 2007 from the University of Patras in Greece.
