I am a senior research scientist working for Schlumberger's research lab in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. I work on communication systems for remote geophysical measurements and manipulations over a variety of medium: pressure pulse propagation, acoustics, EM, etc.
I received my PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT. My thesis work was titled Economical Sampling of Parametric Signals. I worked on nonlinear sampling theory. I am also interested in coding theory, wireless communication and signal processing.
Previously I was at UC Berkeley and Purdue, and sometime visitor at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland. I lived in Bandung, Indonesia half a lifetime ago, and in addition to my current home in Cambridge, MA / Somerville, MA have lived for non-trivial periods of time in West Lafayette, Indiana, Berkeley, California, Lausanne, and Houston, Texas.
In my spare time I enjoy cycling on my Cyfac road bike. I closely follow one-day classics races. Unlike many other cycling fans, I do not care much for Grand Tours (cycling) such as Tour de France, although I find the Giro d'Italia and Vuelta a Espana interesting to watch.
My favorite three races are:
Some research work summaryEdit
- Sampling theory: I have contributed to the theory (and perhaps practice) of signal acquisition based on the finite rate of innovation framework.
- Information theory of databases: I have an ongoing collaboration with MIT on the information theory of databases, or more specifically on synchronizing different versions of a document.
- Multi-user communication: I did some work on multi-user communication, but no longer have an active research effort (at least not in the public domain).
