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

In my research, I analyze and apply randomized algorithms, particularly Monte Carlo algorithms and algorithms for randomized numerical linear algebra. This means I do two things:

  1. I analyze randomized algorithms --- which algorithms have the fastest runtimes and give the most accurate results?
  2. I 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. My email is rwebber at caltech.edu.
