Hello world of TCS

I’m Abraham Flaxman, formerly a post-doc with the MSR Theory Group, and, more formerly, a grad student in ACO at CMU.  I’ve recently received a great opportunity to go in a more applied direction with my research during a post-doc at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at UW  ( “What the heck is that?”, you wonder.  I promise a complete recounting in a future post.)

I’m going to join the world of blogging to share all the interesting applications of computer science theory to global health metrics.  It turns out that there are plenty;  certainly more than I can take on alone.  Stay tuned.
