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 doctoral students keen in coding theory, combinatorics and algorithms.


We are presenting the following papers at the 2020 IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory.

  • Efficient Algorithm for the Linear Complexity of Sequences and Some Related Consequences [presentation]
  • Coding for Sequence Reconstruction for Single Edits [presentation]
  • Constrained Coding with Error Control for DNA-Based Data Storage [presentation]
  • Polar Codes with Balanced Codewords [presentation]
  • Recovery Sets for Subspaces from a Vector Space [presentation]
  • Locally Balanced Constraints [presentation]
  • Maximum Length of Robust Positioning Sequences [presentation]

I have also listed some talks related to DNA-based data storage here.
