Shirin Saeedi Bidokhti

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering at University of Pennsylvania. 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, Internet of Things (IoT), Big data compression, and machine learning.

Note to prospective students: I am looking for students and post-docs with a strong mathematical background, good programming skills, and interest in interdisciplinary research.
