Irit Dinur is interested in theoretical computer science, and especially in error-correcting codes and probabilistically checkable proofs, both of which capture a certain “robustness” in computation. Currently, she is interested in connecting these to so-called high-dimensional expansion​—an analogue of expander graphs that draws on group theory, topology, and combinatorics.
