Clifford Smyth

Clifford Smyth Dr. Smyth earned his Ph.D. in discrete mathematics from Rutgers University in 2001 under his adviser Mike Saks. After postdoctoral work at the Institute for Advanced Study, Carnegie Mellon University, and M.I.T. he joined the UNCG faculty in 2008 and is now an Associate Professor.

He works on problems in discrete mathematics stemming from combinatorial probability, theoretical computer science, discrete geometry, and combinatorial enumeration.

His research has been published in the Journals of Combinatorial Theory, Series A and B -- Combinatorica -- Combinatorics, Probability, and Computing -- Discrete and Computational Geometry -- Symposium on Foundations of Computer Science (FOCS) -- Symposium on the Theory of Computing (STOC) -- Symposium on Computational Geometry (SOCG) -- Conference on Computational Complexity (CCC) and in other venues.
