Rachana Madhukara
I am a firstyear graduate student at MIT, where I am 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 20232024 academic year. Before that, I finished my undergrad at MIT, majoring in Mathematics (18) and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (62). 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.
