C.J. Argue

Lecturer in Mathematics at Yale University, starting July 2022

Graduated PhD student in Mathematics at Carnegie Mellon University

Specializing in Algorithms, Combinatorics, and Optimization

Advised by Anupam Gupta


I am broadly interested in online algorithms and other information-theoretic questions in algorithms, convex geometry, convex optimization, and combinatorial optimization.

Since 2016 I have been privileged to coach the Western Pennsylvania ARML Team, a Pittsburgh-area math team for high school and middle school students. We compete in the annual American Regions Mathematics League (ARML) at Penn State University. Members of the team compete in many other math competitions as well--local and national, individual and team. We practice weekly at CMU (currently online due to covid).
