Professor, University of Washington

James R. Lee received his PhD in computer science from UC Berkeley in 2005, advised by Christos Papadimitriou. Before joining the faculty at the University of Washington in 2006, he was a postdoc at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. His research interests include many aspects of algorithms, computational complexity and optimization. In particular he is interested in high-dimensional geometry, the geometry of discrete metric spaces, spectral graph theory, applied probability, and applications of geometry and analysis in theoretical computer science.
