My research is at the intersection of data science and networking. My group develops data-driven optimization methodologies for communication and social networks, with a particular emphasis on distributed edge intelligence. Contemporary network architectures we investigate include Fog computing systems, the Internet of Things (IoT), and social learning networks (SLN), and our foundational techniques include convex and non-convex optimization, machine learning, and signal processing.
