Research Interests

I am broadly interested in information theoretic aspects of communication, storage and computation. Some of my specific interests include:

  • Interactive Communication in Noisy Channels
  • Distributed Data Compression and Computation
  • Relations between Information Theory and Dynamical Systems, Graph Theory, and Stochastic Control
  • Applications of Information Theory to problems in prediction and inference
  • Statistical Signal Processing
