Venkata Gandikota (GV)

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the College of Information and Computer Sciences at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, working with Prof. Arya Mazumdar. Before this, I was a postdoctoral fellow at Johns Hopkins University, working with Prof. Xin Li on error-correcting codes.

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Purdue University under the supervision of Prof. Elena Grigorescu.

I am interested in the foundations of data science and machine learning. In the past, I have thoroughly enjoyed working on lattices and error-correcting codes.
