Biography

I am a Rudolf Moessbauer assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the Technical University of Munich, and an adjunct assistant professor in the ECE department at Rice University, where I was an assistant professor before, from 2017-2019. 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, and a year in the Cognitive Computing & Computational Sciences Department at IBM Research, Zurich. I completed my PhD in electrical engineering in 2014 at ETH Zurich and was a visiting PhD student at the Statistics Department at Stanford University. I am working in the intersection of machine learning and signal/information processing with a current focus on deep networks for solving inverse problems, learning from few and noisy samples, and DNA data storage.
