It’s exciting times for theory at Stanford these days, with more activity than ever. In the computer science department alone, we’ve hired six new theory faculty over the past three years:
- Moses Charikar joined in Fall 2015.
- Omer Reingold and Mary Wootters joined in Fall 2016.
- And we have three brand-new hires: Tengyu Ma (joint with Statistics), starting in the fall; and Aviad Rubinstein and Li-Yang Tan, both starting in 2018.
(Greg Valiant, who’s been here all of four years, now counts as an old-timer.)
Welcome to all the new members of the Stanford theory group!
