My research interests include sublinear-time algorithms (in
particular, property testing), private data analysis, approximation
algorithms, randomized algorithms and complexity theory.
Before joining BU, I was a professor in the CSE department at Penn State from 2007 to 2017.
I got my PhD from MIT in 2003. From the fall of 2003 to
2006, I worked at the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem, the
Weizmann Institute of Science and the Institute for Pure and Applied
Mathematics. In 2013--2014, I was on sabbatical leave at
Boston University for a special Privacy Year and also participated in the Privacy Tools project at Harvard University in Spring 2014.
If you are interested in joining our CS graduate program, please look at http://www.bu.edu/cs/phd-program/ for information on admissions and a description of the program. Research assistantships are available for strong candidates interested in working in algorithms and theory. Our department receives many applications, and I cannot review all of them personally.
New! If you are interested in a postdoc position, email me. We are looking for strong candidates interested in algorithms and/or data privacy.
