About me

I am interested in discrete mathematics and theoretical computer science. In particular I have been working in graph theory, game theory, combinatorics, and computational geometry. I consider mostly combinatorial problems within a geometric setting, such as planar graphs, intersections models of graph, or point sets in the plane.

I was born in Berlin, where I also did my studies. I did my Ph.D. with my advisor Stefan Felsner at the Department of Mathematics at the Technische Universität Berlin. Afterwards I joined the group of Jan Kratochvil at the Department of Applied Mathematics at Charles University in Prague. From September 2012 to September 2017 I was working in the Discrete Mathematics group at the mathematical department of KIT, where I did my habilitation in 2017. Since October 2017 I am a member of the work group Algorithmics I at the Institute of Theoretical Informatics.
