Our knowledge can only be finite, while our ignorance must necessarily be infinite.

I am Chi-Ning Chou (周紀寧), a first year Ph.D. student studying computer science in the Theory of Computation Group at Harvard University. I am fortunate to have Professor Boaz Barak as my advisor. Previously, I was a research assistant under the supervision of Dr. Kai-Min Chung at Institute of Information Science (IIS), Academia Sinica. I received my Bachelor degree in Computer Science and Information Engineering and minor in Mathematics at National Taiwan University in June, 2016.
My research interest is theoretical computer science, and in particular, computational complexity. I am enthralled by problems in circuit complexity, hardness of approximation, and algebraic computation. In addition, I am also studying pseudorandomness, boolean analysis, and coding theory. Currently I am working on problems concerning better rounding algorithm for SoS-hierarchy and lower bounds for constant-depth arithmetic circuits.
