# Short Bio

Andrew V. Goldberg is a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research -- Silicon Valley. His research interests include design, analysis, and experimental evaluation of algorithms, data structures, algorithm engineering, and computational game theory. Goldberg received his PhD degree in Computer Science from M.I.T. in 1987. Before joining Microsoft, he worked for Stanford University, NEC Research Institute, and InterTrust STAR Lab. His graph algorithms are taught in computer science and operations research classes and their implementations are widely used in industry and academia. Goldberg received a number of awards, including the NSF Presidential Young Investigator Award, the ONR Young Investigator Award, the Mathematical Programming Society A.W. Tucker Prize, and INFORMS Optimization Society Farkas Prize. He is a Fellow of ACM and SIAM.
