I am a Professor and director of the Information Theory and Machine Learning (vITAL) research lab at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of University of Southern California. I received my M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from UC Berkeley in 2005 and 2008. I do research in the areas of information theory, coding theory, large-scale distributed computing, machine learning, and secure/private computing. In Spring 2020, I am teaching a new course titled "Foundations of Secure and Private Computing: from Machine Learning to Blockchains".
