Prospective students: I am looking for highly motivated students to work with me on various research projects in the areas of Energy Informatics and the Internet of Things. If you are interested in graduate studies at UofA, check out this page before you submit an application. If you decide to send me an email, please state why you would like to work with me and what types of projects you might be interested in. You can drop by my office if you are already at UofA. Please note that the outcome of the admission process cannot be determined without a thorough examination of all applications, so I cannot determine your chance of being admitted.

I joined the Department of Computing Science at the University of Alberta in 2017. From 2015 to 2017, I was a postdoctoral fellow at UC Berkeley working with David Culler and Alexandra von Meier, and at the University of British Columbia working with Vincent Wong. I completed my PhD in Computer Science at the University of Waterloo. I was advised by S. Keshav and Catherine Rosenberg. I received a 2015 University of Waterloo “Outstanding Achievement in Graduate Studies” award for my PhD thesis, and three best paper awards at IEEE PES General Meeting 2017, ACM BuildSys 2016, and ACM e-Energy 2013.
