Dr Kitty Meeks
- Royal Society of Edinburgh Research Fellow (Computing Science)
I joined the University of Glasgow in 2014, as a Lecturer in the School of Mathematics and Statistics; I moved to the School of Computing Science in 2016, where I hold a Royal Society of Edinburgh Personal Research Fellowship.
I gained my MMath in Mathematics and Computer Science (2009) and DPhil in Mathematics (2013) from the University of Oxford, and from 2012 to 2014 I worked as a Postdoctoral Research Assistant at Queen Mary University of London.
I am interested in using ideas from pure mathematics to address practical problems arising computer science, primarily in the area of algorithms and computational complexity. My mathematical background is mainly in graph theory, and my current research focusses on combinatorial algorithms and parameterised complexity.
I currently hold a Personal Research Fellowship from the Royal Society of Edinburgh, to work on the project Exploiting Realistic Graph Structure. The long-term goal of this work is to help bridge the gap between theory and practice in the design of network algorithms by developing our understanding of how structural properties of real datasets can help us to extract information from them more efficiently.
