About The Theory Center

The purpose of the theory center is to bring superb speakers and researchers in Theoretical Computer Science in contact with those already in the Seattle area, and enhance collaboration between the Theory Group at the University of Washington and the Theory Group at Microsoft Research.

  • Apply to the graduate program in Computer Science at the University of Washington.
  • Apply for a faculty position in Computer Science at the University of Washington.
  • Apply for a Microsoft Research internship, or a fulltime or postdoc position.
  • Contact Anna Karlin or Yuval Peres for information on visiting or giving a talk at the theory center.
  • Acknowledgements

    Many thanks to Yuval Peres at Microsoft Research for originally proposing the formation of this center.
    We would especially like to thank Yuval and the Theory Group at the University of Washington for funding this endeavor.
