**Daniel Kane** graduated from the mathematics department at
Harvard in 2011; his advisor
was
Barry Mazur.
His thesis
work covered a number of topics mostly in the areas of
theoretical computer science and
analytic number theory. Although
his interests are diverse, his recent work on computer science
has tended to focus on polynomial threshold functions and
derandomization. He is currently working as a postdoc in the
mathematics department of
Stanford University.

Daniel's early interest in mathematics was strongly influenced by his father, Jonathan Kane, who was himself a professor of mathematics and computer science at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.
