I am an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rice University. Before that, I spent one and a half years as 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.
