I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences and a core member of the Center for Computational Biology at UC Berkeley.
Before joining Berkeley, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the NSF Center for Science of Information, and spent much of that time at Stanford University. I received my Ph.D. from UCLA in 2012. My research interests are in the area of information theory, broadly defined. Lately, a significant portion of my research effort has focused on applying information-theoretic principles to problems in computational biology (e.g., algorithms for DNA assembly and compression of sequencing data).
My research is supported by NSF and a Hellman Fellowship.
University of California, Berkeley
