After five fun and stimulating years in the wonderful Microsoft Research New England, I have decided to move on. I will be joining Harvard University as a professor of Computer Science in spring 2016. Moreover, I am thrilled to say that Madhu Sudan will also be joining Harvard. Harvard’s Computer Science is on a growth streak and so stay tuned for more news.
Indeed, throughout my discussions with Harvard I have been consistently impressed by the commitment at all levels, from the President down, to apply all the considerable material and intellectual resources of Harvard to make it one of the absolute top places for Theoretical Computer Science and Computer Science at large. This is not just great for Harvard, but also for our field, and I am truly excited to play a role in this endeavor.
