Dr. Avani Wildani is an Assistant Professor in MathCS and Neuroscience at Emory
University. Prior to that, she was a Pioneer Postdoctoral Fellow in
computational neuroscience at the Salk Institute for Biological Sciences. She
has worked as a systems administrator, video game tester, and lab animal
wrangler as well as research internships at Google, IBM Almaden, and Sandia
National Laboratories. She earned her B.S. in Computer Science and Mathematics
at Harvey Mudd College and her Ph.D. in Computer Science at UC Santa Cruz under
Dr. Ethan Miller. Her interests are centered around information storage and
retrieval across different storage models, with application domains including
access prediction, data deduplication, archival economics, power management,
wireless mesh networks, auditory receptive field characterization, and pollution
monitoring. She is the co-PI of the SimBioSys Lab at Emory, and her group focuses on
information models in cloud and communication systems, particularly those with
biological connections, with a long term goal of categorizing neural
information.
