Brief Biosketch:

Assefaw Gebremedhin is currently an assistant professor in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Washington State University, where he leads the Scalable Algorithms for Data Science (SCADS) Lab. Prior to joining WSU in Fall 2014, he was a research assistant professor at Purdue University Department of Computer Science. There, he served as a founding member and a co-investigator in the Combinatorial Scientific Computing and Petascale Simulations (CSCAPES) Institute, a multi-institution project funded by the Department of Energy under the SciDAC-2 program. His current research activities and interests include: combinatorial scientific computing, network science, high-performance computing, and data mining and machine learning with a focus on applications involving (i) analysis of patterns of short-sequence repeats in DNA data and (ii) development of robust methods for integration and analysis of data collected via sensor-equipped wearable systems and mobile devices. In 2016, Assefaw received the National Science Foundation CAREER Award for work on fast and scalable combinatorial algorithms for data analytics. Assefaw earned his PhD and MSc in Computer Science from the University of Bergen, Norway, and his BSc in Electrical Engineering from Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia.
