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, advised by 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: I am on the job market this year!  I'm looking for positions that start Fall 2016.

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.
