CPH 4301, 200 University Ave. W., Waterloo, ON, Canada
I am an Assistant Professor in Information Sciences and Data Analytics at the Management Sciences Department in the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Waterloo. I am also affiliated with the Waterloo Artificial Intelligence Institute (Waterloo.AI).
Previously, I was a Postdoctoral fellow at the Melady Lab mentored by Prof. Yan Liu in the Computer Science Department, Viterbi School of Engineering, at the University of Southern California. I undertook my doctoral studies with Prof. Jarvis Haupt in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities.
