I am currently with the cognitive computing group at IBM Research, Almaden. I received the Ph.D.  degree in Electrical Engineering and M.A. in Mathematics from the University of California, San Diego. I worked with Prof. Massimo Franceschetti and Prof. Ken Zeger and my Ph.D. thesis was in the area of network coding and function computation.
