Team members

  • Fredrik Hellström has successfully defended his PhD thesis on January 19, 2023 and remained in the group as a post-doctoral researcher during this quarter. He has been recently awarded a prestigious postdoctoral fellowship from the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program and will join Benjamin Guedj’s group at University College London in May as postdoctoral fellow.

  • Jayadev Naram has joined our team in January as PhD student working on information-theoretic generalization bounds. He received his Master of Science—Dual Degree in Computer Science and Engineering—from the International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad, India. His PhD project is supported by a grant from the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program.

  • We will soon announce another PhD student vacancy within our SAICOM project on machine learning for wireless communication.


I’ve participated to the Information Theory and Tapas Workshop organized by Prof. Tobias Koch in January 2023, Madrid, Spain. There, I presented a talk entitled “Seeking information-theoretic bounds that explain generalization”. The slides of the talk are available on the workshop website.


I became director of Chalmers Master Program in Information and Communication Technologies (MPICT)
