We are the Algorithms and Foundations Group in the Computer Science and Engineering Department at NYU's Tandon School of Engineering. Our group is composed of researchers interested in applying mathematical and theoretical tools to a variety of disciplines in computer science, from machine learning, to systems, to geometry, to computational biology, and beyond. You can visit our individual webpages to learn more. If you would like to join our mailing list (for news, relevant talks, etc.) please request to be added here.

We are seeking independent and mathematically strong Ph.D. students to join our group for the 2024-2025 academic year. You should be interested in algorithms, theoretical computer science (TCS), theoretical machine learning, applied math, or related areas. All applications should be made to NYU Tandon's Ph.D. program in CSE.

We co-host the NYU Theory Seminar with the NYU Courant Theoretical Computer Science Group, held weekly on Thursdays in Manhattan. Visit the page for more information if you would like to attend or give a talk!
