Han Mao Kiah

I am currently an Assistant Professor 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. From 2015 to 2018, I was a lecturer at Nanyang Technological University.

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 International Symposium on Information Theory and its Applications.

  • Improved Asymptotic Sphere-Packing Bounds for Subblock-Constrained Codes
  • Reducing the Average Delay in Gradient Coding
