Erfan Sadeqi Azer recently finished his Ph.D. in Computer Science at Indiana University, under the supervision of Prof. Funda Ergun. Currently, he is collaborating with researchers from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) on a bioinformatics project.
His Ph.D. thesis focused on string problems in the streaming model: palindromic substrings, near-palindromes, synchronous string alignment, and near-periodicity.
At the same time, he uses his theoretical background to evaluate or explain the behavior of AI systems in rigorous mathematics. He also has extensive experience in improving the efficiency of existing systems in a variety of topics in bioinformatics, OR, ML, etc. Download his current résumé, here.
