Naveen Goela      

 




 

PhD received from University of California, Berkeley, Wireless Foundations Center. Originally from Andover, MA and went to school at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for undergraduate studies and research at CSAIL . I've enjoyed teaching experiences in Kenya, Africa as part of the MIT African Internet Technology Initiative. I was a visiting scholar at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland. I am interested in statistics, coding theory, and computer vision. I currently live in Berkeley.
