Focus Areas: Discrete Mathematics, Theoretical Computer Science, Theory

My primary research area is complexity theory, and I am specifically interested in circuit complexity, proof complexity, quantum computations and communication complexity. Previously I worked in combinatorial group theory, and I still keep some interest there. At the moment I am also actively exploring certain areas in discrete mathematics, notably extremal combinatorics.



The mathematical foundations of computation, including algorithm design, complexity and logic

Labs & Groups

Theoretical Computer Science Group

The Theory group plays a fundamental role in connecting CS with physics, statistics, and other mathematical sciences.
