I am an Assistant Professor in the Cheriton School of Computer Science with a cross appointment in the Pure Math department at the University of Waterloo.
From 2017-2019, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto and a research fellow at the Simons Institute. Prior to that, from 2012-2017, I was extremely fortunate and happy to have Prof. Zeev Dvir as my Ph.D. advisor at Princeton University.

I am currently accepting new students who have a strong mathematical background and are interested in the following areas and their connections to other scientific areas:
If you would like to apply please send your application directly to the School of Computer Science and mention that you are interested in working with me in your application.
I am happy to learn that you are interested in one of my research projects!
Before you contact me, please carefully read the detailed description of the project you are interested in, including the background material that I am asking from applicants. Also please continue reading!
The best way to work with me is for us to first start working on a problem via an URA or for you to do a final project for one of my classes, and that could develop into a research project in a future term.
I will only consider students directly to URFs if they have an outstanding background, which includes solid command of more advanced material than the prerequisites and/or great performance in mathematics/informatics/physics olympiads.
