Hello! My name is Kristina Monakhova and I am a first year PhD student at UC Berkeley in the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS). I am interested in signal processing, compressed sensing, and computational imaging.

I completed my Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from the State University of New York at Buffalo in May 2016. At Buffalo, I was involved in a nanosatellite mission and several other space-related research projects, which you can read more about on my old website here.
