Welcome to my web-page!

I am a PhD candidate in Electrical Engineering at UIUC. Prior to pursuing my doctorate degree, I worked with Finisar, and Swedish Institute of Space Physics as an analog design engineer. My previous research focused on developing instrumentation for space applications. I am currently working on developing analytical capabilities (polarization, linear/circular dichroism) in QCL-based infrared spectroscopic imagers.

An electrical engineer and space enthusiast, I am an avid traveler, hiker, photographer and runner. I have recently started lead climbing. Besides that some fun stuff..
