Hi! I'm David Tench, a computer science theory researcher interested in streaming algorithms and processing massive datasets.

I apply ideas from this theoretical work to practical problems like disease tracking, measuring internet censorship, neuromorphic computing, and building data structures optimized for modern hardware.

Recent News

Here's what I've been up to lately.

CIFellows award

I was recently named a 2021 CRA/CCC/NSF Computing Innovation Fellow, funding a two-year postdoctoral position with Martin Farach-Colton of Rutgers University.

About Me

I'm a postdoctoral researcher in Computer Science at Stony Brook University advised by Michael Bender and Martin Farach-Colton . I completed my PhD at UMass Amherst in the College of Information and Computer Science, where I was advised by Andrew McGregor. I study CS theory - particularly graphs, randomized algorithms, complexity, and applications of these topics to real-world problems in areas like external memory, filesystems, and networking.
