Shachar Lovett

Asst Professor, Computer Science and Engineering




Computational complexity, coding theory, randomness and pseudo-randomness, explicit constructions

Shachar Lovett is a mathematician who studies the foundations of computer science: Which computational problems can be efficiently solved? Which problems cannot be solved, and why? Lovett’s work touches on and studies the inter-relations between many areas, including: algorithms, computational complexity, coding theory, randomness in computation, data structures and communication protocols. Lovett is particularly interested in connections between these areas and the emerging field of additive combinatorics.
