Han Mao Kiah

I am currently a lecturer at Nanyang Technological University.

I received my Ph.D in Mathematics at Nanyang Technological University under the supervision of Yeow Meng Chee. I was a post-doctoral research fellow at Coordinated Science Lab, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, working with Olgica Milenkovic.

My research interests include coding theory and combinatorics.

Hiring! We are looking for motivated postdoctoral researchers or doctoral students keen in working on developing DNA-based storage for digital information. Individuals with knowledge in coding theory or computational biology are welcomed to apply.


Our article Exabytes in a Test Tube: The Case for DNA Data Storage has made the cover of IEEE Spectrum (May 2018).

We are presenting the following papers at the 2018 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory.

  • Codes Correcting Limited-Shift Errors in Racetrack Memories
  • Efficient Encoding/Decoding of Irreducible Words for Codes Correcting Tandem Duplications
  • Low-Power Cooling Codes with Efficient Encoding and Decoding
