Daniel Alan Spielman (born March 1970, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) has been a professor of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science at Yale University since 2006. In October 2012 he was named a recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship, commonly known as the "Genius Grant".
Daniel Spielman attended The Philadelphia School, Episcopal Academy, and Germantown Friends School. He received his bachelor of arts degree in mathematics and computer science from Yale University in 1992 and a PhD in applied mathematics from MIT in 1995 (his dissertation was called "Computationally Efficient Error-Correcting Codes and Holographic Proofs"). He taught in the Mathematics Department at MIT from 1996 to 2005.
In 2010 he was awarded the Nevanlinna Prize "for smoothed analysis of Linear Programming, algorithms for graph-based codes and applications of graph theory to Numerical Computing" and the same year he was named a Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery.
In 2012 he was part of the Inaugural class of Simons Investigators providing $660,000 for five years for curiosity driven research.
