Nikhil Bansal received his Ph.D. from CMU in 2003; advised by Avrim Blum where he benefited greatly from his wisdom and caring. His research has focused on approximation and online algorithms for scheduling and other optimization problems. He grew up all over India, living in more than a dozen cities. After living in the U.S. for several years, he recently moved to the Netherlands, where he is still getting used to the idea that he can bike to anywhere without being run over by speeding maniacs.
