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 of approximation.

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.
