About Me

This is the academic homepage of Yang Liu (I publish under Yang P. Liu). I am currently a Postdoctoral Member at the Institute for Advanced Study. I received my PhD at Stanford University, where I was fortunate to be advised by Aaron Sidford. Before attending Stanford, I graduated from MIT in May 2018. I am broadly interested in mathematics and theoretical computer science. My research focuses on the design of efficient algorithms based on graph theory, convex optimization, and high dimensional geometry (CV).

I will be starting as an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University in January 2025.

My research was supported by the National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowship from 2018-2021, and by a Google PhD Fellowship from 2022-2023.
