Boris Alexeev

I graduated from the PhD program in mathematics at Princeton a few years ago. I was supported by the NSF graduate research fellowship. I am interested in some mix of algebra, combinatorics, and complexity.

For over ten years, I co-organized the annual UGA high school math tournament in Athens, Georgia.

I'm not a boat.
