EE 20221-Signal and Information Systems


This course introduces students to the concept of information carrying electrical signals and how as Electrical Engineers we can create, manipulate, transmit and receive information by electronic means. The course covers, basic linear circuit analysis; elementary signal theory; time and frequency-domain analysis; and the sampling theorem. The course will explore applications of these techniques to real-world problems.

Assistant Professor, Electrical Engineering

My research interests include robotic autonomy, mobile sensor networks, and human robot interaction. I aim to devise practical, computationally-efficient, and provably-correct algorithms that prepare robotic systems to be cognizant, taskable, and adaptive, and can collaborate with human operators to co-exist in a complex, ever-changing and unknown environment.
