I'm an Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the EECS Department of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Previously, I have been on the faculty of the Department of Computing, Imperial College London (where I maintain an Honorary Senior Lecturer position), a Qualcomm Research Fellow at the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing of U.C. Berkeley and post-doctoral scholar at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (hosted by Piotr Indyk), Computer Science Department of the Carnegie Mellon University (hosted by Venkatesan Guruswami) and the University of Texas at Austin (hosted by David Zuckerman).

Current students at the U of M: I'm always glad to meet with you and chat about anything, including but not limited to courses, research collaborations, general academic and professional advice, and concerns and misconduct. To reach out and schedule an appointment, simply send me an email and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. We can also have a virtual meeting on Zoom, or Skype (user id: "cheraghchi", just text me there and we can have an impromptu virtual meeting as soon as I'm available).

Prospective students: Our CS Theory lab is always looking for motivated Ph.D. students with strong math background. If you are a prospective student interested in theoretical computer science, information and coding theory, privacy or related subjects (see my interests below), contact me and describe your background and goals. Apply to our graduate program here, and mention my name as your potential advisor in your application. I stand against application fees.
I received my PhD in Computer Science from EPFL, Switzerland, where I worked as a research assistant in the Laboratory of Algorithms (ALGO) under supervision of Amin Shokrollahi.

I'm mainly interested in Theoretical Computer Science, or more specifically: Some random links:
