University of Washington, Seattle
I recently started as an assistant professor at the Univerity of Washington, Department of Electrical Engineering, Seattle. My research interests are centered around information theory, which deals with the fundamentals of information processing and transmission, and its applications to computational biology and wireless networking.
We are currently in the process of building this research group at UW. We are looking for Ph.D. students and postdoctoral researchers, with interests in information theory, machine learning and algorithms. We work both on the mathematical theory for these problems as well as in engineering the associated systems (for example, in developing high performance software systems for computational biology). Students with a deep interest in either theory or in systems development are encouraged to apply. Prior interest/exposure to biology will be an added advantage. Please send me a note if you are interested.
