As part of the Wireless Communication and Network Sciences Laboratory, Alexander Tsankov received an M.S. degree in electrical engineering and computer science from Massachusetts Institute of Technology for his thesis work on communication between different groups of transcriptional regulators in the cell. His current research efforts focus on understanding how control of genes has evolved between different species, especially at the level of chromatin organization. He is a NDSEG and NSF fellow.
