I am an assistant professor at UCSD with a joint appointment between CSE and Mathematics. My username is dakane and you can reach me at this username at @ucsd.edu, @math.ucsd.edu or @eng.ucsd.edu. I also have a gmail account with username ALadKeenIn.


This academic year I will be teaching:



Math 96

Math 184A


Winter: At Berkeley for Simons pseudorandomness program and MSRI analytic number theory program.


Spring: CSE 101, CSE 291


I have broad research interests within mathematics and theoretical computer science. While my research covers a wide range of topics my mathematics work tends to be within the broad areas of number theory and combinatorics, while my computer science research tends to be about derandomization or Boolean functions (with particular emphasis on polynomial threshold functions).
