About Me

I am Assistant Professor - Teaching Stream in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto. From 2023 to 2024, I was Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Wireless Computing Lab (WCL) in the University of Toronto. From 2020 to 2023, I was Postdoctoral Research Associate and Lecturer at the Institute for Digital Communications (IDC) in the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), Germany. I have received my PhD (in German Doktor der Ingenieurwissenschaft) with distinction from FAU in 2020, supervised by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ralf R. Müller and Prof. Dr. Hermann Schulz-Baldes. 

My main area of expertise is Machine Learning with focus on Deep Learning and its applications to Communications and Signal Processing. My research also investigates the connections between Theoretical Physics and the Theory of Learning. This has been the topic of my doctoral dissertation, entitled Statistical Mechanics of Regularized Least Squares, and is still one of my research areas

Lectures Materials

The lecture materials of my courses at FAU can still be accessed through StudOn. You can also download the lecture-notes here. The lecture-notes have been updated last time on Winter 2022-23. The version on GitHub is the final version, and hence could contain some changes compared to the older versions on the StudOn pages of previous semesters.
