I am an Assistant Professor at MIT. I lead the Signal Kinetics research group at the MIT Media Lab. My group explores and develops new technologies and algorithms that can extend human and computer abilities in communication, sensing, and actuation. We tap into the invisible signals that surround us -- from WiFi to brain waves -- to uncover, analyze, and engineer natural and man-made networks. Our research draws on tools from computer networks, signal processing, machine learning, and hardware design.
