AlgoUK Workshop at Warwick

On 17-18 September, we will be hosting the AlgoUK workshop at Warwick. AlgoUK is a two-day national workshop, combining a UK theory day with an additional one-day workshop focusing on applications and applied areas relevant to algorithms and complexity. The talks will take place in MS.02

Rajesh Chitnis joins as postdoc

Rajesh Chitnis has joined the ERC project “Small Summaries for Big Data” as a postdoctoral research fellow, under the supervision of Professor Graham Cormode. Dr Chitnis has made foundational contributions to the area of data summarization and fixed parameter tractability, most notably his work on the complexity of graph problems in various models.  Prior to joining Warwick, Rajesh completed his PhD at the University of Maryland College Park, and spent time as a researcher at the Weizman Institute.  He will work on problems relating to the intersection of streaming, distributed computation, and kernelization.


The University of Warwick department of Computer Science was rated second in the country in the recent REF exercise run by the UK government.

The University is also one of five selected to take part in the Alan Turing Institute, a new venture designed to lead British research in Computer Science.  The department of computer science, along with Mathematics and Statistics, will lead the university’s involvement.
