Rachana Madhukara

I am an incoming graduate student at MIT, where I will be advised by Profs. Greg Wornell and Yury Polyanskiy. I am broadly interested in statistical inference, information theory, and the applications of mathematics to computer science.

Previously, I was a Fulbright scholar at the Renyi Institute in Budapest, Hungary during the 2023-2024 academic year. Before that, I finished my undergrad at MIT, majoring in Mathematics (18) and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (6-2). See here for what I was up to in my undergrad. Outside of academics, I enjoy hiking and having thoughtful discussions with people! Please feel free to drop me a line anytime.
