I am an associate professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, UC-Davis, and I lead our team at the Laboratory for Embedded and Programmable Systems (LEPS). I received my PhD in Computer Science from UCLA in 2004.

Note to prospective graduate students: We have several PhD student openings in our team in the general area of embedded computing. If you are interested in joining us, please send me your resume and a copy of your transcripts. Ideal candidates would be hard working and self-driven individuals, with strong background in lower division core courses (mathematics, probability/statistics) and key computer engineering topics (algorithms, computer software & hardware foundations). Strong background in other areas of electrical engineering (particularly signal processing, communications or control) in lieu of formal computer engineering education would be acceptable.

I am interested in design methodologies for embedded and cyber-physical systems (CPS), which utilize computing to monitor, service and control various application-specific processes, including those in the physical world. My work deals with modeling, analysis and optimization of embedded software, programmable execution platforms, and tools for automating the design process. The area offers an interesting blend of theory and practice: real-world applications give rise to design challenges, and solutions are developed using a combination of analytical and experimental techniques.

Currently, My students and I are working on remote monitoring of patients' physical-therapy drills using wearable sensors, and synthesis of streaming applications targeting embedded multi-processor platforms.
