Alexandra KollaI am an Associate Professor at the Computer Science Department at CU Boulder.
I got my PhD at U.C. Berkeley. My advisor was Umesh Vazirani. After that, I did a postdoc at the Institute for Advanced Study and at Microsoft Research in Redmond. Before joining CU Boulder, I was a professor at UIUC.
Research interests: Spectral Graph Theory, Algorithms, Complexity, Convex Programming, Quantum Computing.
I am particularly interested in the use of spectral methods in graph algorithms
