Hi, I am Kartik, a Ph.D candidate in the Electrical Engineering department at Stanford University, where I am affiliated with the Information Systems Laboratory. I am lucky to have Prof. Tsachy Weissman as my advisor.
I also had the fortune of interacting with the late Prof. Thomas Cover, who was also my co-advisor. Here is a link to the memorial website, where many former colleagues and students have shared memories of their interactions with Tom.
Before joining Stanford, I studied Electrical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur.
