Sara Krehbiel

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Santa Clara University. I received my PhD in Algorithms, Combinatorics, & Optimization from Georgia Tech, my MS in Computer Science from UT Austin, and my BAS in Economics and Mathematical & Computational Science from Stanford. Before joining Santa Clara in Fall 2019, I was an assistant professor for four years at the University of Richmond.

I have taught introductory programming, discrete math, algorithms, and special topics courses in data privacy. I am currently teaching automata and formal languages.

My research spans several subfields of theoretical computer science and generally falls into two categories: data privacy and applications of graph theory.
