Leslie Ann Goldberg is a professor of computer science at the University of Oxford and a Fellow of St Edmund Hall.[1] Her research concerns the design and analysis of algorithms for random sampling and approximate combinatorial enumeration.[2]

Goldberg did her undergraduate studies at Rice University[1] and completed her doctorate from the University of Edinburgh in 1992 under the joint supervision of Mark Jerrum and Alistair Sinclair.[3] Her dissertation, on algorithms for listing structures with polynomial delay, won the UK Distinguished Dissertations in Computer Science prize.[4] Prior to working at Oxford, her employers have included Sandia National Laboratories, the University of Warwick, and the University of Liverpool.[2]

Goldberg is an editor-in-chief of the Elsevier Journal of Discrete Algorithms,[5] and has served as program chair of the algorithms track of the International Colloquium on Automata, Languages and Programming in 2008.[6]

She is a member of the Academia Europaea.[2]
