I am an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Swarthmore College. I received a Ph.D. in computer science in September 2010 from Dartmouth College, where I was fortunate to be advised by Amit Chakrabarti. Between Dartmouth and Swarthmore, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Tsinghua University and Aarhus University.
My main research area is theoretical computer science. I am particularly interested in communication complexity, and in how communication lower bounds give you lower bounds in areas such as streaming algorithms, property testing, and data structures.
