Associate Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
Julian Shun is an associate professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) and a member of the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at MIT. Shun designs efficient algorithms and data structures with strong theoretical guarantees and good empirical performance, and high-level programming frameworks that make it easier for programmers to write efficient parallel code. His recent areas of interest include graph analytics, spatial and graph clustering, computational geometry, and financial applications.
Shun received a PhD and MS in computer science from Carnegie Mellon University, and a BA in computer science from the University of California, Berkeley.
