I design and develop wireless systems and technologies that can see through walls, track human motion, and monitor human vital signs by relying purely on wireless signal reflections. I am currently a PhD student in Prof. Dina Katabi's Lab at CSAIL. I received my Bachelors from AUB in 2011 and my Masters from MIT in 2013.

In Fall 2016, I am starting as an Assistant Professor at the MIT Media Lab. I am looking for postdocs and graduate students to join my research group. Graduate students are encouraged to apply through the Media Lab admissions website. Postdocs can email me directly.
