Antonio Blanca


I'm a second-year PhD student in Theoretical Computer Science at UC Berkeley. I'm interested in the design and analysis of randomized algorithms, Markov chain Monte Carlo methods, and spectral algorithms. I am fortunate to be supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and a Chancellors Fellowship for Graduate Study. I graduated from Georgia Tech with majors in Computer Science and Discrete Math.

My advisor is Alistair Sinclair.
