Research interests:
Algorithms and complexity theory. Geometry and analysis at the interface between the continuous and discrete. Probability, spectral graph theory, and metric geometry.


I am currently organizing the Simons Institue program on Algorithmic Spectral Graph Theory.

Recently, I was on the program committees for SODA 2014, ICALP 2014, and FOCS 2014.

Winter 2015: Randomized algorithms
