Theo McKenzie

Hello! I am currently an NSF MPS-Ascend Postdoc at Harvard University in the Department of Mathematics. In Fall 2023, I will join the Department of Mathematics at Stanford University as a Science Fellow. In Spring 2022, I graduated from UC Berkeley, where I was very fortunate to be advised by Nikhil Srivastava and Luca Trevisan. My research is on the spectral geometry of discrete graphs. More generally, I am interested in questions motivated by mathematical physics, computer science, and probability theory on graphs. Before coming to Berkeley, I received my bachelor's degree from Harvard and worked as a trader for 2 years.
My office is Science Center 226.

CV (updated January 2023)



I teach the Elementary Algebra class through BU as part of their prison education program at MCI-Framingham. As a Ph.D. student I was the lead instructor for Precalculus and Intermediate Algebra at Mount Tamalpais College (formerly the Prison University Project) at San Quentin State Prison. Find more information on the project here.
In Spring 2019, I served as a Graduate Student Instructor for Math 10B (Methods of Mathematics: Calculus, Statistics, and Combinatorics). My sections' quizzes and worksheets are linked here.
