We are proud to welcome Dr. Barbara Anthony, our new Computer Science professor. Dr. Anthony spent her undergraduate years at Rice University and graduated with concentrations in Computational and Applied Mathematics, Mathematics, and French Studies. She obtained her Ph.D. in Algorithms, Combinatorics and Optimization (ACO) in May 2008 from Carnegie Mellon University. This is an interdisciplinary program which combines aspects of theoretical computer science and discrete mathematics. Her research interests lie in the areas of approximation algorithms and network design problems.
