Reinhard Heckel

Assistant Professor TUM, Rice University

I am a Rudolf Moessbauer assistant professor in ECE at the Technical University of Munich, and an adjunct assistant professor in ECE at Rice University, where I was an assistant professor from 2017-2019. Before that, I was a postdoctoral researcher in EE and CS at UC Berkeley, and a researcher at IBM Research, Zurich. I completed my PhD in electrical engineering in 2014 at ETH Zurich and was a visiting PhD student at the Statistics Department at Stanford University.

I work in the intersection of machine learning and signal/information processing with a current focus on deep networks for solving inverse problems, learning from few and noisy samples, and DNA data storage.
