About me

After aquiring my PhD in 2015 at the Theory Group (RWTH Aachen University), I worked for one year as a postdoc at the Theory in Practice Group (NCSU) and another year at Royal Holloway. I currently work as a lecturer for Birkbeck University of London.


My main interests are in parameterized complexity and graph theory. Currently I try to reconcile network theory and structural sparsity in order to bring efficient algorithms into application. Consequently I torture myself with random graph models and data analysis.

Fancy pictures

I really enjoy visualizing the concepts that crop up in our work. The following pictures are a selection of my favorites, feel free to use them however you see fit (with attribution, please).

The font used in these pictures is the great Alegreya which is available via google fonts.

Platypus Book

The authors of the excellent book Parameterized Algorithms asked me to illustrate it, which is why the book now contains drawings of a Platypus, a Squirrel, a Woodpecker, a Lemming and a Lokshtanov.


The following is a list of slides from past presentations. Feel free to contact me if you feel that something is missing.
