Shirin Saeedi Bidokhti

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering, with a secondary appointment in the Department of Computer and Information Systems. I am an affiliate of the Warren Center for Network and Data Sciences. I received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer and Communication Sciences from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL). Before joining UPenn, I was a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University and Technical University of Munich. I have also held visiting researcher positions at Pennsylvania State University, ETH Zurich, and University of California at Los Angeles.

My research interests include information theory, networking, Internet of Things, and machine learning.
