I am an Olga Taussky and John Todd - Von Kármán Postdoctoral Scholar Teaching Fellow at Caltech, jointly supported by the Mathematics and CMS departments. I am mentored by Venkat Chandrasekaran and Leonard Schulman in CMS and David Conlon in Math. I received a PhD from the Department of Mathematics at the University of Washington in June 2023, advised by Rekha Thomas. I can be reached by email at cbabecki(at)caltech(dot)edu.
Research Interests: My research interests include combinatorics, discrete geometry, optimization, graph theory, spectral graph theory, and theoretical computer science.
Teaching: In Fall 2023, I am teaching a special topics course on Spectral Graph Theory (ACM 270) in the CMS department at Caltech. Check out my CV for my past teaching & mentorship positions.
