Christian Konrad


UPDATE: I recently started as a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at the University of Bristol. Please use my new email address to contact me (my email address at Warwick is no longer valid). My web page will be updated soon.

I am currently a research fellow in the Department of Computer Science of the University of Warwick. I am also affiliated with DIMAP, the Centre for Discrete Mathematics and its Applications.
Before joining Warwick, I spent three years as a Postdoc at Reykjavik University in the group of Magnús Halldórsson. I obtained my PhD from University Paris Diderot under the supervison of Frédéric Magniez.

My general research interest is the design and the analysis of algorithms. I am working mainly on streaming algorithms, distributed algorithms, online algorithms and communication complexity.
