Jeff Edmonds


Research Interests

  • Complexity, lower bounds, algorithms;
  • Combinatorics, probability theory, scheduling.

Jeff Edmonds received his Ph.D. in 1992 at University of Toronto. His thesis proved lower bounds on time-space tradeoffs. He did his post doctorate work at the ICSI in Berkeley on secure data transmission over networks for multi-media applications. He joined the department in 1995. His research interests include complexity theory, scheduling, proof systems, probability theory and combinatorics.
