Office: HFH 5161
I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara .
Note to Prospective Graduate Students:
We are always looking for good graduate students. Please apply if interested. I apologize, but I do not typically respond to email inquiries regarding graduate school positions due to the large number of inquiries. If interested, please apply directly to the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and I will review your application during the review process.
