Ioana O. Bercea

Currently a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the School of Electrical Engineering at Tel-Aviv University. My host is Prof. Guy Even. While my TAU webpage is under construction, this one will still be live.

I graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park, Computer Science Department in Summer 2018.
I was advised by Prof. Samir Khuller.

I obtained my Master's degree from UMD under the supervision of Prof. Aravind Srinivasan.
I graduated from the University of Chicago, with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics(Honors) and Computer Science.

Research Interests

I am interested in the broad area of Theoretical Computer Science and specifically in Combinatorial Optimization, Approximation Algorithms, Computational Geometry, Robotics and Randomized Algorithms.
