  • Nominated by USC to present at the ITA workshop in February. Talk title: A graph sampling perspective for semi-supervised learning.

  • New submission: When does an ensemble of matrices with randomly scaled rows lose rank. Submitted to ISIT 2015.

  • New paper accepted: Asymptotic justification of band-limited interpolation of graph signals for semi-supervised learning. ICASSP 2015.

  • New paper accepted: Topological interference management with just retransmission: What are the best topologies. ICC 2015.



My research areas include information and learning theories, and their applications in wireless networks and big data analytics. In particular, I have worked on the design and information theoretic analysis of physical-layer secure wireless communication schemes, interference management schemes for cellular networks, as well as graph-based methods for semi-supervised learning. I am interested in conducting future research at the intersection of information and learning theories, with potential emphasis on bio-inspired learning.
