Shachar Lovett's homepage

Hi! I am an Associate Professor in the CSE department in UC San Diego. I am part of the Theory of Computation group and help run the theory seminar.

I have a broad interest in theoretical computer science and mathematics. In particular computational complexity, randomness and pseudo-randomness, algebraic constructions, coding theory, additive combinatorics and high-dimensional geometry. My research is funded by NSF.
