Assistant Professor, Rice University

Maryam Aliakbarpour is the Michael B. Yuen and Sandra A. Tsai Assistant Professor in the Computer Science Department at Rice University. Before joining Rice, she held a joint postdoctoral research position at Boston University and Northeastern University, hosted by Professors Adam Smith and Jonathan Ullman, respectively. Additionally, she served as a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, under the supervision of Prof. Andrew McGregor, from Fall 2020 to Summer 2021. In Fall 2020, Maryam was a visiting participant in the Probability, Geometry, and Computation in High Dimensions Program at the Simons Institute at Berkeley. She successfully completed her Ph.D. in September 2020 at MIT, under the guidance of Prof. Ronitt Rubinfeld. Maryam's outstanding achievements led to her selection as one of the Rising Stars in EECS in 2018. Moreover, she received the Neekeyfar Award from the Office of Graduate Education at MIT in 2013. Maryam's research interests lie in theoretical computer science and statistical learning theory, particularly in designing algorithms for statistical problems with computational constraints and differential privacy.
