About Me

I was born and brought up in Melbourne, Australia where I reside today. In 2007 I graduated from Caltech with a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, under the supervision of Professor Babak Hassibi. I currently work as a Data Scientist for Telstra. Previously I had roles in IBM Research Australia and the Mobile Research & Development Divison at NEC Australia.

I also have a Master of Science from Caltech and prior to that completed Bachelor's degrees in Mathematics and EE (both with Honours) at the University of Melbourne.
