John Wilmes


I am an algorithms researcher and data scientist with experience in machine learning and Markov chain Monte Carlo techniques. I'm currently available for work—get in touch!


Over the course of three years as Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Brandeis University, I

I left Brandeis in 2021 to relocate to Chicago with my family.

Previously, I was a postdoc in the Algorithms and Randomness Center at Georgia Tech where I produced provable guarantees for training neural networks and Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithms. My Ph.D. thesis at the University of Chicago introduced faster algorithms for bottleneck cases of the graph isomorphism problem.
