About me

Hello! I'm a PhD candidate in the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) department at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). I'm advised by Prof. Naresh Shanbhag at the Coordinated Science Lab (CSL). My research is primarily focused on the deployment of robust, resource-constrained, and energy-efficient machine learning and signal processing systems, utilizing circuit, architectural, and algorithmic level techniques. I received my B.E. degree with High Distinction in 2017 from the ECE department at the American University of Beirut, Lebanon. I received my M.S. degree in 2019 from the ECE department at UIUC.


My research interests include:

  • Machine Learning

  • Signal Processing

  • Adversarial Robustness

  • Digital Integrated Circuits

  • Computer Architecture

  • Embedded Systems
