Bio

Ben Moseley is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis. He works in the theoretical computer science (TCS) group at WashU. He received a PhD from the University of Illinois and was advised by Chandra Chekuri.

Professor Moseley's research interests are broadly focused in the field of theoretical computer science. Specifically, he is interested in the design, analysis and limitations of algorithms. He is also interested in the applications of algorithms. His work currently has focused on scheduling theory, resource allocation, distributed computing and massively parallel computation, theoretical foundations of machine learning, and online algorithms.

Ben Moseley has won several best paper awards including a 2015 IPDPS Best Paper Award, a SPAA 2013 Best Paper Award and a SODA 2010 Best Student Paper Award. He is a 2016 Simons-Berkeley Fellow, a Google Faculty Research Award recipient, and a Yahoo! Academic Career Enabling (ACE) Award recipient. From 2012-2014 he was a Research Assistant Professor at the Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago. He was a visiting professor at Sandia National Laboratories in 2013 and an intern at Yahoo Labs during the summers of 2010 and 2011.

I am currently looking for one or two mathematically-minded graduate students interested in algorithmic research (for a wide range of applications) to work in my group. If interested, please submit an application to the CSE department here.
