I design and develop wireless technologies that can see through walls, track human motion, and monitor human vital signs by relying purely on wireless signal reflections.

My research supervisor is Prof. Dina Katabi at CSAIL. I am part of NETMIT and Wireless@MIT. My graduate studies are supported by the Microsoft Research PhD Fellowship. I received my Bachelors from AUB in 2011 and my Masters from MIT in 2013.
