I’m Phil Chodrow, assistant professor of computer science here at Middlebury. My pronouns are he/him/his. I love data science, math, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, cooking, tea, Studio Ghibli movies, traditional martial arts, and effective pedagogy. A few miscellaneous facts about me:

Professional Journey

Before coming to Middlebury, I was a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics at UCLA, mentored by Mason Porter. I did my PhD at MIT’s Operations Research Center under the mentorship of Marta González and Patrick Jaillet. My research at MIT was supported by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. Prior to MIT, I was an undergraduate at Swarthmore College and a Fulbright Research Scholar at the University of Oslo, Norway. Here’s a visual representation of my journey (excluding Norway, which doesn’t fit well on the map):
