Yin Tat Lee

I am an assistant professor in the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington.

My research interests are primarily in algorithms and they span a wide range of topics such as convex optimization, convex geometry, spectral graph theory, and online algorithms. My primary research goal is to find algorithms for solving a general class of convex optimization problems. See my Publications page for more about my work.

I have received a variety of awards for my work, including Best Paper Award at SODA 2014, Best Paper Award and Best Student Paper Award at FOCS 2014, Best Student Paper Award at FOCS 2015, Sprowls Award and NSF Career Award.
