Michael Chavrimootoo, URCS PhD Student


I am a 3rd year Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Rochester under the supervision of Professor Lane A. Hemaspaandra. My research spans computational social choice (COMSOC), complexity theory, and economics. I'm driven by a need to understand the landscape of a field to find surprising structures and techniques that open new avenues. This had led me to explore the problems in COMSOC and complexity and determine precisely what separates them from other problems, or when collapses are hiding in plain sight. Before that, I completed my undergrad 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!
