Shirin Jalali

I am an assistant professor at the electrical and computer engineering department of Rutgers University. Before joining Rutgers University, I was a research scientist at Nokia Bell Labs and prior to that worked as a research associate scholar at Princeton University and a faculty fellow at NYU Tandon School of Engineering. I have received my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and M.Sc. in Statistics, both from Stanford University. I got my B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology.

My main background is in information theory, high dimensional statistics and machine learning. Currently I am interested in a range of problems related to i) developing theoretically-founded computationally-efficient solutions to understand and address various issues rising in modern computational imaging, such as speckle noise​ and ​snapshot imaging​, ii) online learning, iii) structure learning, and iv) developing an information theoretic understanding of neural networks and deep learning.
