About me

I work as a postdoctoral researcher in algorithm theory and discrete optimization at Kiel University. Currently I work on my own DFG project on the topic “Approximation Methods in Integer Programming”. Before, I was a visiting professor at the University of Bremen and a PostDoc at EPFL in the group of Friedrich Eisenbrand. I received my PhD at Kiel University where I was adviced by Klaus Jansen.

Main Interests

My main research goal is to build an algorithmic theory based on structured integer programs.

  • Integer Programming
  • Combinatorial Optimization
  • Approximation Algorithms
  • Paramterized Complexity
  • Bin Packing/Scheduling Problems
  • Fine-Grained Complexity
