I am an NSF postdoctoral fellow in the CS department at Carnegie Mellon University, working with Venkat Guruswami.  I received my PhD in mathematics in 2014 from the University of Michigan, under the supervision of Martin Strauss.  Before that, I received my B.A. in math and computer science from Swarthmore College

My interests lie mostly in applied probability, with applications including randomized algorithms, signal processing, coding theory, matrix completion, and group testing.  I dabble in quantum information theory and complexity theory.

News: For Spring 2015 I am visiting the Simons Institute at Berkeley off-and-on.

Office: 7125 GHC (Carnegie Mellon) or 206 Calvin (Berkeley), probably not both at the same time.

My friends and I made this awesome mural with crayons.  The theme of the mural is "dinosaurs, spaceships, and hot air balloons".

(I am the one with glasses, not the brontosaurus.)

Mary Wooters (with one t) is NOT my name, but apparently people google it looking for me so I may as well have it on my website.
