Dr. Z. Huang
Message to students
Broadly speaking, my research is in the area of theoretical computer science. Specifically, my research interests span various topics in algorithmic game theory, differential privacy, and online algorithms. The main theme of my research is to develop the theory of computation in the presence of private data held by self-interested agents, using mathematical tools from computer science, economics, information theory, etc. If you are mathematically mature and enjoy solving hard algorithm problems, you might be interested in working with me (check my publications for more details).
Research topics/projects
Algorithms, Optimization, Game Theory, Privacy

Prof. T.W. Lam
Message to students
My research is about algorithms. Before I focused more on theoretical aspects, recently I get more satisfaction from algorithm engineering and practical applications (in particular, Bioinformatics). If you have a mathematical mind and like tackling challenging problems, you're of my type.
Research topics/projects
Energy-efficient scheduling, text indexing and alignment, NGS data analysis
