First year PhD student in the Algorithms and Complexity research group (ACiD).



My research interests include Structural, Algorithmic and Extremal Graph Theory, Combinatorics and Discrete Mathematics. In the past I have been working on graph relations like Minor and Immersion but now we are focusing on some algorithmic and structural problems on F-transversals in graphs, like Vertex Cover, Feedback Vertex Set and Odd Cycle Transversal, and their variants.
If you are interested in some of these topics please get in touch with me or with one of my supervisors.
