About Me

My name is Kaveh Ghasemloo (Persian: کاوه قاسملو).

Ph.D. student in the Theory Group, Department of Computer Science, University of Toronto under the supervision of Prof. Stephen A. Cook. I successfully defended my Ph.D. thesis in July 2016.
I will be joining Google Canada soon.

Email is the preferred way to contact me.
However I can be slow in replying to emails, particularly during busy periods. If you are contacting me about a really important issue which requires my immediate attention, please start your email's title/subject line with "URGENT:", and I will try to reply ASAP.

When I receive too many emails I focus on replying to 1. emails from people I personally know, and 2. emails directly related to my work. If you are emailing me about my work please use an informative title so I can notice it from the title. If your email falls in one of the two categories above and I haven't replied after a few days it is likely that I have received it during a busy period and might have forgotten to reply. Please accept my apologies and kindly send a reminder. Thank you.

If you are contacting me about a course I am teaching please use the email address provided for the course.
