Hello! I'm Sam, a PIMS postdoctoral fellow at University of Manitoba. I recently completed my PhD at University of Illinois at Chicago. My advisor was Shmuel Friedland. My research interests include spectral clustering, random graphs, and applications of linear algebra to combinatorics and computer science. I also enjoy programming, teaching math and computer science, and many different types of music.
