About me: I am an associate professor at the University of Virginia with appointments in Electrical and Computer Engineering and Computer Science. Previously, I was a postdoctoral scholar at Caltech. I received my Ph.D. in ECE from UIUC in 2013. I also received an M.Sc. in mathematics from UIUC in 2012 and an M.Sc. in ECE from the University of Toronto in 2008. My Erdos number is 2 and here is my academic geneology (courtesy of Anatoly Khina).

My interests include information theory, bioinformatics/computational biology, and machine learning. I particularly gravitate towards problems that lie in the intersections of these areas, such as data storage in DNA, compression of biological data, and probabilistic and information-theoretic modeling of DNA mutations.
