I am part of the theory group and have a
broad range of interests in the design and analysis of algorithms. I often work on
I am currently looking for graduate students. If you are a prospective graduate student interested in theory/algorithms,
please apply to the Duke Computer Science graduate program and
send me a short note. For more details of our theory group, please check out our theory wiki.
- Graph algorithms
- Online and approximation algorithms
- Resource allocation and scheduling
- Combinatorial optimization
- Algorithms for Internet applications
- Algorithms for communication networks
I am also looking for motivated Duke undergraduate students, and have research opportunities in multiple areas of algorithm design. If you are
a junior interested in this opportunity, please send me an email with your interests and background (e.g., performance in relevant courses).
