Sepehr Assadi

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

I am currently a PhD student in the department of Computer & Information Sciences at University of Pennsylvania, affilated with the Theory Research Group. I am very fortunate to have Sanjeev Khanna as my advisor.
Prior to my enrollment at Penn, 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 and in particular streaming and distributed algorithms and lower bounds. I am also interested in the areas of approximation and online algorithms, communication complexity, and algorithmic game theory.
