Research Interests

I am a theoretical computer scientist. My recent work includes fast linear system solvers and spectral graph algorithms. These algorithms are capable of handling very large networks, and so I often take interest in implementing and applying my theoretical work in the context of machine learning and data mining. I am also interested in applications of algebra in the design of exact and parameterized algorithms for NP-hard problems. My research is supported by the National Science Foundation.
