I received a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Florida International University (FIU) in 2009. From 2009 to 2011, I was a NASA postdoctoral research fellow. I joined the faculty of the Computer Engineering program at California State University, Fullerton (CSUF) in 2011. At CSUF, I have taught several engineering courses ranging from the freshman level to the graduate level. My teaching interests are in the areas of computer architecture, embedded systems, mixed-signal design, hardware security, and DSP. The courses I have taught since joining CSUF include microcontrollers, embedded processor interfacing, current topics: wearable computers, hardware security, computer organization and design, advanced computer architecture, and real-time audio processing. I am the co-director of the  Center for Collaborative Research and Prototype Development (CCRPD)Opens in new window   and the advisor of the Partnership for Applied Computer Engineering (PACE)Opens in new window student group.
