I am a Ph.D. student in MIT's Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS). I am a member of MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), and I am working in the Supertech group with Professor Charles Leiserson.

My research is primarily focused on provably good parallel algorithms and data structures and performance engineering. To first order, I am generally interested in computer science (both theory and systems), math, awesome puzzles, doing cool research, and having fun doing cool research. If you have recommendations in any of those areas, please feel free to let me know.

What do people call me?

Most people refer to me by my first two initials, "TB." Many people also call me "Ben." My full name is "Tao Benjamin Schardl," which I shorten to "Tao B. Schardl" on all of my publications. On occasion I have been known to respond to "Tao," "Tuberculosis," and "Mr. Boat."

What is my username, and what does it mean?

My username is neboat, though I will use an alternative username neboat16 if the former is taken. I leave the question of what neboat means an exercise for the reader.
