During 2024 I am a post-doctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Michigan, under the supervision of Prof. Stéphane Lafortune.

I earned my Ph.D. degree in Computer Engineering from Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Queen's University at Kingston, where I conducted research in the area of decentralized problems of discrete-event systems under the supervision of Prof. Karen Rudie.

I obtained both of my BASc (2018) and MEng (2019) degrees in Computer Engineering from Queen's University.

I was at McMaster University as an Ontario Visiting Graduate Student during the 2021 Fall term.
