Margalit Glasgow


I'm Margalit, a final year PhD student in the Stanford Computer Science department. I am very fortunate to be advised by Mary Wootters and Tengyu Ma. I'm broadly interested in theoretical computer science and theoretical machine learning. I am grateful to be supported by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.

Before coming to Stanford, I studied Math with Computer Science (18C) at MIT. There, I was lucky to work with Henry Cohn in the math department, and in Silvia Rouskin's biology lab at the Whitehead Institute, where I worked on RNA structure.

Some of my favorite things to do are hike, bike and teach (and sometimes both at the same time!).
