joshalmanI’m a Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science at MIT, advised by Ryan Williams and Virginia Vassilevska Williams. I work on algorithm design and complexity theory, and I especially like using algebraic tools to solve problems throughout computer science.

A couple years ago I transferred to MIT from Stanford with my advisors. Before that, I was a Math major at MIT, where I lived on Floorpi in East Campus, and I helped organize the Undergraduate Math Association. I have also interned in the Theory Group at IBM Almaden, worked as a Software Engineer at Addepar, and participated in the REU in Combinatorics at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.
