Hi! I am an Assistant 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, discrete mathematics and additive combinatorics. I am supported by an NSF CAREER award 1350481, an NSF CCF award 1614023, and a Sloan fellowship.

Sasha Kulikov and I created a website that aggregates information on all Theory CS events: cstheory-events.org

The next Trends in Theory workshop will be on Quantum Computation, March 19-22, 2018 in UCSD. Registration is free.
