One of my major goals as an academic is to fill up a dinner table at PODC with my former students.  This year, Max and Amitabh help me move closer to this goal by winning the academic lottery – both have gotten tenure-track positions at great research-focused CS departments.

Maxwell Young has accepted a position in the CS dept. at Drexel University – an up-and-coming CS dept in Philadelphia.  Max has done great work on designing robust algorithms for sensor networks, most recently developing the new analytic technique of resource competitive analysis.

Amitabh Trehan has accepted a position in the CS dept at Queens University in Belfast, UK.  Amitabh tells me that Belfast was the launching point for the Titanic, so I have big expectations for the arc of his career there.  (I kid Amitabh 🙂  Amitabh designed algorithms for self-healing networks as a PhD student at UNM.  Recently, as a post-doc at Technion, he has done great work in leader-election and game theory.

Congratulations to both Max and Amitabh!  I’m proud to have worked with both of you, and look forward to many successful collaborations to come.

Thanks for the kind words, Jared, I’m looking forward to seeing you here in Ann Arbor next week!! And congrats to Amitabh, that’s great news!

Jared, many thanks for all your wishes and guidance. Indeed, the Titanic was built and launched at Belfast (http://www.titanic-titanic.com/titanic_launch.shtml) but I hope I am in better shape than she was a month after her launch! 🙂 – Belfast is actually in the UK!! (not Ireland).
Looking forward to the Jared Saia table at a future PODC! – surely, you’ll be buying us all the drinks! 🙂
