Welcome to An Zhu's Home Page




        I joined Google recently.

This is a talk that I gave at UMD and USC.
This is an android game - Tractor for Android that I co-wrote recently.


        I graduated with a Ph.D. degree in CS, after spending 5 years in the Computer Science Dept. (theory division) at Stanford University.

My advisor is Rajeev Motwani. My coadvisor is Leo Guibas.
I graduated from the University of Maryland at College Park, May 1999.  (B.S. in Computer Science and Mathematics)
