I am a graduate student in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University. I share an active interest in information theory and its applications to multi-user networks. Some of the areas I have been investigating are lossy data compression techniques for content distribution, including distributed source coding for peer-to-peer networks, network coding, stability in networks, and network security. My advisor is Professor Aaron Wagner.


I received the S. B. and the M. Eng. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, both from MIT, in 2006 and 2007, respectively, with a minor in Economics.
