Shyam Narayanan

I am a second year Ph.D. student in MIT's Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department, working in Theoretical Computer Science. I am very fortunate to be advised by Professor Piotr Indyk. I am interested in problems from a variety of areas in math and computer science, and have recently been thinking about testing and learning distributions, streaming algorithms, and dimensionality reduction. I love thinking about algorithms generally, as well as problems in probability theory, combinatorics, and number theory.

Before coming to MIT, I was an undergraduate at Harvard, where I received a Master's degree in Statistics and a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics with a minor in Computer Science. During my undergraduate years, I was very fortunate to be advised by Professor Jelani Nelson, Professor Joe Gallian, and Professor Barry Mazur.
