Hello! I am currently a postdoctoral scholar in Caltech's Department of Computing & Mathematical Sciences, supervised by Joel Tropp.

I study the theory and application of randomized algorithms. This means I do two things:

  1. Prove theorems about randomized algorithms, i.e., which methods have the fastest runtimes and produce the most accurate results?
  2. Apply randomized algorithms to solve problems in chemistry, astronomy, and geophysics with the help of subject area experts.

To find out more, take a look at my projects, papers, curriculum vitae or Google scholar. You can find videos of chickens and lizards on my random page, and upcoming talks are listed on my talks page. My email is rwebber at caltech.edu.
