About Me


Welcome to my webpage! I am Varun Jog, currently a 5th year Ph.D student in the Electrical Engineering Department at UC Berkeley. I am advised by Professor Venkat Anantharam. I work on problems in information theory. I'm interested in the connections between convex geometry and information theory, particularly in inequalities within these areas. I'm also interested in optimal transport, and its possible connections to information theory.

Prior to joining Berkeley, I graduated with a Bachelor of Technology (B. Tech) degree in Electrical Engineering from IIT Bombay in 2010. I was advised by Professor Abhay Karandikar and Professor Sibi Raj B Pillai. I also spent three exciting months (May-July 2009) at the Department of Information Engineering, Chinese University of Hongkong working with Professor Chandra Nair.

A copy of my CV (updated February 2015) may be found here: CV.

My office is located in 264 Cory Hall - The Eugene and Joan C. Wong Center for Communications Research.


For Spring 2015, I will be a Graduate Student Instructor (GSI) for EE126: Probability and Random Processes.
In Fall 2014, I was a GSI for EE-226A: Probability and Random Processes.
