Andrew Winslow

I am a postdoc at Université Libre de Bruxelles in the Algorithms and Computation group. Previously, I completed my Ph.D. at Tufts University and B.S. at the University of Arizona. My CV and resume.

Starting in fall 2016, I will be an assistant professor of computer science at University of Texas, Rio Grande Valley.


I study computation and geometry, especially their intersections.
UTRGV students interested in these topics should consider joining me.

A current list of my papers is below, partitioned by topic and in reverse chronological order.
Topics include tile self-assembly, plane tiling, and geometric reconfiguration.

Non-Research (just for fun)

I am a member of the VirtualGlass project.

I enjoy travelling and spending time with my wife. We have visited France, Spain, Japan, and Barbados together.

I run (uncompetitively), mostly in Bois de la Cambre. A long time ago, I was a competitive cross-county and downhill mountain biker and was sponsored by Brick Wheels bike shop.

I like lots of music, including things like Future Islands, Saint Pepsi, and Childish Gambino. Sometimes I go to shows; some of my favorites were by The Yeah Yeah Yeahs (2003), The Brian Jonestown Massacre (2006), and Future Islands (2013). I also enjoyed Coachella 2004 (Air, Belle & Sebastian, the Cure, Flaming Lips, Pixies, Radiohead).
