About me

I am an assistant professor at DePaul University, adjunct assistant professor at Northwestern University and the CTO of SenseWhy INC. I also teach Wireless and Mobile health (mHealth), Health Informatics, Electronic Health Records, and Applied Computing courses. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from Washington State University (WSU) in 2021 at EMIL Lab. I currently work on health monitoring projects related to behavioral medicine.
