As reported earlier, we had a very accelerated hiring season at UMD — all our candidates were brought in for interviews before the end of last semester(!)
I am pleased to announce that three faculty will be joining our department, including one “core theorist” and two other “theory-friendly” profs. These are:
- Mohammad Taghi Hajiaghayi (Algorithms)
- Hal Daume (Natural Language Processing/Machine Learning)
- Hector Corrada Bravo (Computational Biology)
I look forward to seeing them all here!
