Lele Wang is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UBC. She was a postdoctoral researcher from 2015-2018, first jointly with Tel Aviv University and Stanford University, and later as an NSF CSoI (Center for Science of Information) fellow jointly with Stanford University and Princeton University. She obtained her PhD degree at the University of California, San Diego in 2015 and her BE degree at Tsinghua University in 2009.

Her research focuses on two important aspects of information processing—practical low-complexity algorithms for communication and compression, and the theoretical limits on information flow over networks. More broadly, she is interested in developing tools in information theory, coding theory, graph theory, and combinatorics for emerging challenges in data science applications.
