Assistant Professor, MIT
Founding Director, Signal Kinetics Research Group
Principal Investigator, MIT Media Lab    


RESEARCH MISSION: My research group explores and develops new technologies and algorithms for wireless perception, networking, and sensing with a focus on biomedical sensing, autonomous systems, and subsea IoT. Our research draws on tools from computer networks, signal processing, machine learning, and hardware design.

BRIEF BIO: Before joining MIT as an Assistant Professor, I received my Masters (2013) and PhD (2016) in Computer Science from MIT and my Bachelors (2011) from AUB. My research on seeing through walls was named as one of the 50 ways MIT has transformed computer science, and my wireless sensing technology is being utilized in medical studies at major hospitals in the US. I have also received the TR35 under 35 award, the NSF CAREER Award, and the ONR Young Investigator Award.

Postdoc Openings: I have openings for postdocs in underwater acoustic or ultrasonic systems. You can find more information on how to apply here.
