Back in academia

I'm back in academia - I've taken a position as a visiting assistant professor at Haverford College. So far, that's mostly meant moving cross country and lots of unpacking. But now I'm starting to prep the two intro classes I'll be teaching this fall (one directed towards majors, one for non-majors). It's exciting!

So hello again. I may never be allowed to talk much about all the cool things I saw at Google, but for now, my thoughts are my own.

Congrats! What made you decide to switch? Or is this something you've always wanted to do?

Thanks all! I'm excited to be back to teaching and doing research. It's unfortunately only a visiting position, so I'll have to wait to see what happens longer term. For now, I'm just looking forward to having fun with it for a bit. (;

Hi Sorelle, I remember well the inspiring work-ethic you demonstrated as a student-volunteer for STOC 2009. I am sure you will carry that same commitment to Haverford. Your students are lucky.

All the best,
Aravind
