Research title

Topological Parameter Choice for FPT Graph Algorithms

Research summary

I am a member of the Formal Analysis, Theory and Algorithms research group in the School of Computing Science.

My interests lie in discrete mathematics and theoretical computer science, particularly in combinatorics, graph theory and complexity theory.

I study structural aspects of graphs (such as: graph minor theory, tree-likedness, sparsity) and their interplay with parameterized complexity.
