I completed both my undergraduate (B.S. 1999) and graduate degrees (M.S. 2001, Ph.D. 2004) at the California Institute of Technology. Under the tutelage of my advisor Prof. P. P. Vaidyanathan, I was a member of the Caltech Digital Signal Processing (DSP) Group from 1999 to 2004. The focus of my doctoral research was the design of optimal realizable signal-adapted filter banks, especially finite impulse response (FIR), paraunitary (PU) types.

Currently, I am a signal analysis engineer for the Signal Processing Research Group (332C) at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. My interests and work include the analysis and synthesis of signal processing algorithms with applications in communications, radar, and data compression.

In the third term of 2012, I taught a graduate level special topics course entitled EE 150: Applications of Convex Optimization in Signal Processing and Communications. More information for this class can be found using the associated link.
