Theoretical Computer Science at the University of Chicago

The Theory group sprung up with the founding of the Department in 1983 and has thrived ever since. In the intellectual environment of the University of Chicago, a university dedicated to fundamental research in all areas, our Theory group graduated a number of outstanding doctoral students. Our faculty, as well as current and former graduate students have produced widely cited results and won major awards in Theory.

Our group is enhanced by close collaboration with TTIC, a relatively new institution on the University of Chicago campus with several faculty members and postdocs in Theory.

Both the Department and TTIC continue to hire in a variety of areas, including Theory, so we expect our group to further expand in the next several years.
