Rajiv Agarwal


I am currently a research scholar in Prof. John Cioffi's group at Stanford University. I am broadly interested in the application of mathematical and statistical tools such as convex optimization, information theory, graphical models, machine learning and statistical signal processing to wireless communications, solid-state storage devices, integrated circuits, big data classification and modeling. If you are a student (M.S./Ph.D.) or post-doc at Stanford University interested in collaborating with me in any of the fields of interest to me, contact me!

I completed my PhD at the StarLab, Electrical Engineering department, Stanford University. My advisor was Prof. John Cioffi. During my PhD, I worked on the downlink wireless networks with limited feedback. My research was partly sponsored by research grants from Intel and Link-A-Media Devices.

I completed my undergraduate studies at the Electrical Engineering department, IIT Kanpur.
