Mrinal Kumar

I am a research fellow in the Program on Lower Bounds in Computational Complexity at the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing at University of California, Berkeley.

Prior to this, I was a postdoc in the Combinatorics and Complexity Program at the Center for Mathematical Sciences and Applications at Harvard.

I completed my PhD in May, 2017 in Computer Science from Rutgers, where I was advised by Swastik Kopparty and Shubhangi Saraf.

Research Interests

I am broadly interested in problems in Computational Complexity, Algebraic Complexity, Algebra and Computation and Error Correcting Codes.
My papers can be found here and my PhD thesis can be found here.
