Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
Piotr Indyk is the Thomas D. and Virginia W. Cabot Professor in MIT’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Indyk is also an investigator at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab, and a member of the Theory of Computation Group, Wireless@MIT, Big Data@CSAIL, and MIT Institute for Foundations of Data Science. His research interests include high-dimensional computational geometry, including approximate nearest neighbor search, data stream algorithms, sparse recovery, compressive sensing, and machine learning. Indyk earned a degree from Uniwersytet Warszawski, and a PhD from Stanford University.
