# Joshua A. Grochow

**Biography:** I am an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Computer Science and Mathematics at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where I am a member of the CS Theory Group.

My research has two main thrusts (with deep underlying relations beneath): Interactions between theoretical computer science and mathematics (particularly algebraic geometry, representation theory, and group theory), and Developing the theory of complex systems and complex networks, and applying this theory with my collaborators in a variety of fields, such as ecology, evolutionary biology, economics, climate, and beyond. I'm always looking for new problems that need new theory! I was previously an Omidyar Fellow at the interdisciplinary Santa Fe Institute for complex systems. Prior to SFI, I was a postdoc in the University of Toronto CS Theory Group, and prior to that I got my Ph.D. at the University of Chicago.
