Welcome to the Information Processing and Storage Lab

Our interests include information theory, bioinformatics/computational biology, and machine learning. The research in our lab gravitate towards problems that lie in the intersections of these areas, such as stochastic and information-theoretic modeling of DNA mutations, compression of biological sequences, and rank aggregation and its application to computational biology.

Prospective graduate students: We have an openning for Fall 2021, preferably in Information and Coding Theory, but exceptional candidates in other areas with a strong mathematical background will also be considered. You can apply to UVa ECE and/or CS and list my name (Farzad Farnoud) as a faculty of interest. Also, feel free to send me an email, with the title “Graduate Applicant for Fall 2021“. Please avoid generic emails with only some keywords from our research description copy/pasted.
