Michael A. Forbes

About: I am currently a postdoc. For Spring 2015, I am a member of the School of Mathematics at the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS). In particular, I am a member of the Theoretical Computer Science and Discrete Mathematics group, led by Avi Wigderson. I study the theory of computation (complexity theory), and more particularly the interaction of randomness, algebra, and computation.

I recently received my PhD from MIT where I was co-advised by Prof. Scott Aaronson and Prof. Amir Shpilka. My PhD thesis developed deterministic algorithms to solve cases of the polynomial identity testing problem.

Contact Info: I am most easily reached via email: first two letters of first name, last name, at csail.mit.edu.
