About Me

This is the academic homepage of Yang Liu (I publish under Yang P. Liu). In September 2018, I started a PhD at Stanford University in mathematics. Before attending Stanford, I graduated from MIT in May 2018. I am interested in theoretical computer science at large, especially algorithm design. I am also interested in combinatorics and number theory.

My research is supported by the National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowship.
