Sepehr Assadi


I will be joining Rutgers University as an assistant professor in Fall 2019.

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Theory of Computation group at Princeton University working with Mark Braverman. I obtained my PhD from the department of Computer & Information Science at University of Pennsylvania and was very fortunate to have Sanjeev Khanna as my advisor. Prior to that, I got my B.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering from department of Computer Engineering at Sharif University of Technology, Iran.

Research Interests


My primary research interest is in theoretical foundations of big data analysis. This in particular includes sublinear algorithms and lower bounds in various models of computation for processing massive datasets such as streaming, distributed communication, massively parallel computation, and sublinear time algorithms. More broadly, I am also interested in communication complexity, online algorithms, and algorithmic game theory.
