Hi, I'm Goutham Rajendran.

I am a PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Chicago advised
by Prof. Madhur Tulsiani. Recently, I've been thinking about random matrix theory,
with the goal of designing algorithms for optimization problems.

Prior to joining UChicago in Fall 2016, I did my Bachelor's at Chennai Mathematical Institute.

Fun stuff

I used to do a lot of competitive programming. My handle is xorfire: Codeforces, Topcoder, Codechef.

In another life, I would have been a professional footballer (read: soccer) but in this one,
my career has been plagued with injuries :)
