Research

My research interests are in the areas of networks, statistical signal processing, and machine learning. Currently, I'm working on gossip algorithms for distributed processing, distributed tracking, and algorithms and theory for signal processing on graphs.

My research is sponsored by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) of Canada, Le Fonds Quebecois de Recherche sur la Nature et les Technologies (FQRNT), the Canadian Foundation for Innovation, and Ministère du Développement Économique, de l'Innovation et de l'Exportation.
