I am a Postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley.
Before that, I spent a year in the Cognitive Computing & Computational Sciences Department at IBM Research, Zurich.
I completed my Ph.D. in August 2014 at ETH Zurich, Department of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering, advised by Helmut Bölcskei.
In Fall 2013, I was a visiting Ph.D. student in the Statistics Department of Stanford University.
I am interested in various topics in machine learning, mathematical signal processing, sparse signal recovery, and computational biology.
