I was on a panel on safely reopening schools. The main speakers were
Darius Lakdawalla, an economist with expertise in epidemiology, and
Paul Romer, the 2018 Nobel prize winner in economics. June 2020.
The following interview in IEEE Spectrum discussed our work on pooled coronavirus testing in detail.

During the last several years, we have been inundated by a deluge of data
in applications including distributed networked systems, finance, medical imaging, and seismics.
My interest lies in fundamental research for problems
involving vast amounts of data that must be processed effectively
and rapidly in order to extract useful - potentially "actionable" - information.
To approach these problems, we must use a
multi-disciplinary approach, and I combine tools
from information theory,
statistical signal processing, machine learning, and
I call this computational information processing.
Specific research directions that I have worked on include:
In addition to teaching,
and I developed software for automating questions in
(Introduction to Signal Processing; undergraduate course)
software. Each student receives a customized version of
each of the questions, and the student is allowed several
attempts to solve the question. The student may also request
another version of the question (with different numbers).
We used these for homeworks and quizzes during the 2015
Students solved the quizzes in class using laptops, tablets,
or even smart-phones; they received quiz grades immediately.
Overall, students provided favorable feedback
system, especially because it
allowed many small homeworks sets followed by brief quizzes,
which forced them to study consistently throughout the semester.

Regretfully, I cannot respond to most inquiries regarding openings for
graduate and postdoctoral positions in my group.
To get my attention, I suggest that you browse through my
webpage, see whether some of the research directions seem
interesting, and explain how it caught your attention.
I will very likely respond to such inquiries.
In contrast, prospective students who send the same letter to dozens or even
hundreds of potential advisors should realize that this approach
is unlikely to succeed.
