Research highlight
  • My general research area is the fusion of machine/deep learning with dynamic physical networks. Particularly, I am interested in distilling information from high-dimensional structured data, sparse networks and fomulating real-time efficient algorithms. Specific applications include event identification, faults location, detection, and non-intrusive load disaggregation in power grids.
 Educational Background/Employment:
