RESEARCH MISSION: My research focuses on inventing, building, and deploying wireless sensor technologies to address complex problems in society, industry, and ecology. My team's technical innovations span different aspects of sensor design and engineering - including materials, hardware, signal processing, algorithms, machine learning, and network architectures. Our current research focuses on subsea IoT, digital health, RFID, and robotic perception.

BRIEF BIO: Before joining MIT as faculty, 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.
