I am a professor of Computer Science in the Computing and Mathematical Sciences department at Caltech, and a member of the Theory Group.
My research interests are in theoretical computer science,
especially computational complexity. Specifically, I am interested in
derandomization, explicit constructions, algebraic complexity and algorithms, and hardness
I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Berkeley in 2000. From 2000-2002 I was a postdoc in the Theory Group at
Microsoft Research. I joined Caltech in 2002.
