Principal Scientist

Location:Los Altos

Laboratory:Personalization Lab

Short Bio:

Nadia Fawaz received the Diplôme d’ingénieur (M.Sc.) in 2005 and the Ph.D. degree in 2008, both in electrical engineering, from École Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications de Paris (ENST) and EURECOM, France.

From 2009 to 2011, she was a postdoctoral researcher in the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge. Her current research interests include information theory and random matrix theory, applied to data privacy and monetization, and wireless communications.
