I am an Assistant Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at UCSD. I am also affiliated with the Center for Machine Intelligence, Computing & Security and the Center for Energy Research. My research interests broadly lie in machine learning, dynamical systems, and control. My lab focuses on various aspects of creating intelligent systems, with an emphasis on principled learning and control algorithms for sustainable energy and power systems.

I received my Ph.D. (2020) in Electrical and Computer Engineering and M.S. (2020) in Statistics from the University of Washington advised by Prof.Baosen Zhang on the topic of machine learning and control for energy systems. Prior to UCSD, I spent 1 year as a postdoc fellow at Caltech advised by Prof. Adam Wierman and Prof. Anima Anandkumar, and several research internships in Google DeepMind, JD Research, and Doosan Gridtech.

Prospective Students and Postdocs

We are looking for highly motivated and self-driven Ph.D. students and postdoctoral candidates with a strong mathematical background and foundation in machine learning, control, and energy systems. Our lab has 2 openings for fully-funded Ph.D. students to start in FALL 2024 (Application Deadline: 2023/12/20). There are also positions for master/undergraduate research. If you are currently at UCSD, please fill out the Application Form first and send me an email with your resume and UCSD transcript once you filled out the application. For all other applicants: If you are interested in visiting opportunities, please fill out Visiting Scholar Form and send me an email.

Both theoretical and empirical research is carried out in the group and students who can build bridges between the two, and also between different disciplines will be a good fit here.
