joshalmanI’m a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at MIT, advised by Ryan Williams and Virginia Vassilevska Williams. My research is about using Combinatorics and Algebra in Theoretical Computer Science.

I recently 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.
