InterestsComputational complexity, algorithms, bounded rationality.
BiographyI am a Professor of Computer Science at Oxford, and a Tutorial Fellow at Magdalen College. I obtained a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Chicago in 2005, working under the supervision of Prof. Lance Fortnow and Prof. Janos Simon. After postdoctoral stints at Simon Fraser University and the University of Toronto, I joined the University of Edinburgh as a Lecturer in Computer Science in 2008. I was promoted to Reader in 2013, and moved to Oxford in 2016. In 2013, I was awarded the ERC Consolidator Grant ALUnif on "Algorithms and Lower Bounds: A Unified Approach", which I hold from March 2014 until February 2019.
