Roberto Imbuzeiro Oliveira (b. 1977) is a full professor at IMPA. Roberto’s research interests are in Probability and related disciplines such as Statistics, Optimization and Discrete Math, especially as they pertain to systems with many degrees of freedom or an interesting combinatorial structure. Roberto holds a Ph.D. degree from the Courant Institute at New York University (2004), where he was advised by Joel Spencer. Previous degrees include a B.Sc. in Math from PUC-Rio (1999) and a M.Sc. in Math from IMPA (2000). Prior to joining the faculty of IMPA in 2006, Roberto was a Postdoctoral Researcher with the Physics of Information group at IBM TJ Watson Research Center, where he was mentored by Barbara Terhal.
