Michael A. Forbes

About: I am currently a postdoc. For the 2015-2016 academic year, I am a postdoc in the Theory of Computation group at Princeton University. 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.

I will be applying for academic positions in the Fall of 2015.

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