Aaron B. Wagner
I am an Associate Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University. During the 2005-2006 academic year, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Coordinated Science Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a Visiting Assistant Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell. I did my graduate work at the University of California, Berkeley. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
I study problems at the intersection of information theory and other fields including networking, statistics, queueing theory, security, computational linguistics, and learning. I am particularly interested in data compression and it connections to statistics and learning.
