About me

  • I am an Assistant Professor (UD 2) at VU Amsterdam in the Theoretical Computer Science group. I also have a partial affiliation with CWI Network and Optimization group . I was a postdoctoral researcher at University of Salzburg in Austria working with Sebastian Forster. I completed my PhD at Johns Hopkins University, where I was advised by Mike Dinitz, and my masters at University of Calgary in Canada. You can access my current CV here (last update: Feb 2024).

Research Interests

    I am broadly interested in algorithms and theoretical computer science, with an emphasis on graph algorithms in various computational settings (dynamic, distributed, etc). I look at graph theoretical structures that can be used to improve running time or memory of solving fundamental computational tasks. I am also interested in approximation and online algorithms, and the interplay of these topics.
