Information for
potential students:

- If you are a ECE/CS junior/senior at Illinois with solid programming experience (C++/Java/MATLAB) and you are interested in this area, please send an email with your resume (with GPA) and we will setup an interview. I can fund undergraduate researchers.

- I generally provide RA funding
**only**to**PhD students**with**"mathematical maturity".**Roughly this means ability to**understand and recreate theorems and proof**s from technical papers which use applied mathematics in the context of, say, algorithms, automata theory, control theory, logic, stochastic processes, etc. See the exercise below.

- I may advise MS research if you have outstanding programming skills (e.g., C++, Java).

- I am not looking to hire undergraduate summer interns.

**Exercise for PhD applicants**. Choose 1-2 recent papers
from here.
Write a brief critique: what is the main result, why does it
work (where does it break)? This is a mechanism for me to
judge your level of interest and preparation. If this is a
good fit, I can do much more for you in terms of admissions
and funding.
