Brendan Juba is an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis. His current research interests lie in theoretical approaches to artificial intelligence, founded on the theory of Algorithms and Computational Complexity. He is also interested in theoretical computer science more broadly construed. Previously, Brendan worked as a postdoc under the supervision of Leslie Valiant, jointly affiliated with Harvard and MIT with the Center for Science of Information until the fall of 2012, and subsequently solely affiliated with Harvard through the summer of 2014. He completed his Ph.D. at MIT in 2010 under the supervision of Madhu Sudan, and his dissertation "Universal Semantic Communication" was published by Springer in 2011. Brendan also holds a M.S. in Mathematical Sciences and B.S. in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University, both awarded in 2005. He was also the recipient of the AFOSR Young Investigator Award in 2015.
