Michael Chavrimootoo, URCS PhD Candidate


I am a final year (graduating in May 2024) Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science at the University of Rochester under the supervision of Professor Lane A. Hemaspaandra.

I am on the job market this academic year (for a Summer or Fall 2024 start)!

My research spans computational social choice (COMSOC), which falls within AI (multiagent systems), but also draws on social choice theory, economics, political science, algorithms, and complexity theory. I'm driven by a need to understand the landscape of the field to find surprising structures and techniques that open new avenues. This had led me to explore the problems in COMSOC (and complexity) to determine precisely what separates them from other problems, and when collapses are hiding in plain sight. Before that, I completed my undergraduate CS BS and Political Science BA at UR, with a focus on courses in CS theory, elections, and economic development.
Some problems I've worked on: I'm always open to exploring new theoretical concepts in computer science, economics, and math, along with their applications. Feel free to reach out if you have overlapping interests!
