About me

I'm a postdoctoral scholar in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences department at the University of California at Berkeley, co-mentored by Murat Arcak and Sanjit Seshia.

I received my Ph.D.from the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) department at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), advised by Sayan Mitra at the Coordinated Science Lab.

I work in the research areas of cyber-physical systems, formal methods, control theory, and machine learning. My research has so far focused on designing algorithms to efficiently verifying the safety of cyber-physical systems, finding optimal bit rates for state estimation and control, and evaluating the robustness of perception modules of autonomous systems.

I received my BE degree in Computer and Communications Engineering from the American University of Beirut (AUB) in May 2014 and my MS in ECE from UIUC in December 2017.
