Andrej Bogdanov grew up in Macedonia in the former Yugoslavia. He tried to take his first steps in computing on a Galaksija but the machine wouldn't start. Later he attended summer camps for kids who like geometry, the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality (still a favorite), and swimming in lake Ohrid at sunset. Andrej went on to MIT, Berkeley, The Institute for Advanced Study, DIMACS at Rutgers, and ITCS at Tsinghua University, before joining, in 2008, the Chinese University of Hong Kong where he is an assistant professor at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and associate director of the Institute of Theoretical Computer Science and Communications. His research interests include pseudorandomness, cryptography, and sublinear-time algorithms.
