I am a Ph.D. student working on memristor-based RF circuits, both front-end and back-end. My current work includes RF memristor modeling and the integration of memristive switches in RF circuits. The non-volatility, small footprint, and low-energy switching, combined with high RF performance make memristors excellent candidates for reconfigurable RF devices. I am also interested in VLSI, CMOS RF, and mixed-signals. In the past, I worked on Low-Power Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN).

I am also a TA in the EE faculty, teaching the VLSI course.
