Dawit Nigatu was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in 1987. He received his Bachelor degree from the department of electrical and computer engineering, Jimma University, Ethiopia, in 2008. Afterwards, he worked at a telecom company as a network survey and design engineer. In 2012, Dawit moved to Germany for his masters study at Jacobs University Bremen. Dawit joined Transmission Systems group at Jacobs University in August 2013 to pursue his integrated Ph.D studies. He is currently working as a research associate on an interdisciplinary project of analyzing DNA sequences using information and communication theoretic tools. His primary research interests are in the areas of bioinformatics, statistical inference, machine learning, signal processing, information theory and genomics.
