I am a PostDoc at University of Bonn, hosted by Jens Vygen. I will join the group of Rico Zenklusen at ETH Zurich as a permanent member in August 2024, thereby going back to where I obtained my PhD degree in 2021.
My main research interests lie in the development of efficient exact or approximation algorithms for various problems in Combinatorial Optimization. I am convinced that theoretical insights and advanced algorithmic techniques can give a huge benefit in real-world applications, which is why besides theory research, I am also interested a lot in industrial projects. Check out both the publications and applied projects sections to get a glimpse of what I’ve been up to recently!

|I’ll be at the Aussois Combinatorial Optimization Workshop in January 2024. I am looking forward a lot to another edition of this great event, see you there!

|The journal version of our paper Congruency-Constrained TU Problems Beyond the Bimodular Case is available here. If you actually want to read the paper, I’d advise you to go for the preprint available at arXiv:2109.03148, though.
