Naveen Goela


Artificial Intelligence Lab Researchers


(2017) Novel advances in DNA storage in collaboration with biologists at Harvard University.



Naveen Goela received undergraduate degrees in computer science and mathematics, and a M. Eng. degree in computer science in 2004, all from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, MA, USA. His research at MIT focused on multi-camera visual hull reconstruction, and motion graphs. In 2013, he received the Ph.D. in electrical engineering and computer science with designated emphasis in statistics from the University of California, Berkeley. His past experience includes a research internship at Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs (MERL) in 2006, a visiting scholarship at Ecole Polytechnique F\'ed\'erale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland during 2011-2012, and a post-doctoral research position at Qualcomm Research in Berkeley, CA, USA during 2013-2014. Currently, he is a member of Technicolor Artificial Intelligence Lab in Los Altos, CA, USA. From 2007-2010, he was awarded the U.S. National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowship. He received Qualcomm's company-wide ImpaQt award in 2014 for patents related to 5G wireless communications, and company awards for patent innovation at Technicolor in 2015. He is currently the lead researcher at Technicolor Research on the topic of DNA storage, working in collaboration with biologists at Harvard University.
