Jarosław Błasiok, Ph.D.Columbia University
Jarosław Błasiok is starting a postdoctoral fellowship in the Theory of Computation group at Columbia University. He is presently finishing his Ph.D. at the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University, advised by Professor Jelani Nelson. He received his B.S. and M.Sc. in Computer Science from the University of Warsaw.
He has a broad research interest in Theoretical Computer Science and has worked in design and analysis of streaming algorithms, the theory of error-correcting codes, algorithms related to machine learning, differential privacy and compressed sensing. In his dissertation, he described his research in streaming algorithms and error correction, featuring applications of randomized methods in these two areas.
