I am currently a second year PhD student in Communications and Signal Processing Group of Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Imperial College London, supervised by Professor Pier Luigi Dragotti.

Previously, I obtained a first class Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Imperial College London in 2018.

My research interests include deep learning, finite rate of innovation, spiking neural networks and inverse problems.

You can also find me at Google Scholar, ResearchGate and LinkedIn.
