PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS

Graduate Students: I am always looking to work with motivated graduate students interested in solving challenging but exciting information processing problems that lie at the intersection of signal processing, statistics, harmonic analysis, and machine learning. The expertise I seek in graduate students include a solid understanding of linear algebra, probability theory, and convex optimization and an ability to reason independently. If you think you would enjoy working with me and have the required background, I encourage you to mention my name in your admission application. Also send me an email explaining the aspects of my research that interest you the most along with a copy of your curriculum vitae that includes class ranks and standardized scores. I especially encourage qualified students of color, women and other underrepresented students to consider joining my research group. Please note that the volume of such emails dictates that I cannot respond to each applicant individually, but I do my best to read emails from all prospective students and pursue the most relevant ones with the admissions committee. Finally, a word of advice: Canned email is an instant way of showing your lack of seriousness in pursuing a position in my research group.

Undergraduate Students: I encourage Rutgers undergraduate students interested in exploring research opportunities in the areas of signal processing, statistics, harmonic analysis, and machine learning to contact me in order to setup an appointment. Research experience gained as an undergraduate student can not only ensure placement in the best graduate programs in engineering (Rutgers being one of them) but can also help you prepare better for a job with some of the best employers in the country. I especially encourage students of color, women and other underrepresented students to contact me for exploring research opportunities.
