PhD, BE (Hons First class)

Biography

Avinash obtained his BE (Hons I) and PhD from the University of Auckland in 2010. He then worked as a post-doctoral fellow at INRIA Grenoble, the French Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation. His work as a post-doctoral fellow continued at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland in the department of computer science and statistics, after which he then took a role as a research scientist at IBM Research. He joined the University of Auckland in May 2013.
