I am a Professor and the Associate Head of School (Research) (currently on leave from this role) in the School of Computer Science and Engineering at UNSW.
I joined UNSW in 2012, first as an ARC DECRA Fellow and then as a Future Fellow. I obtained a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Bergen (Norway) under the supervision of Fedor V. Fomin in 2008. From 2009-2012, I held postdoctoral positions in Montpellier (France), Santiago (Chile), and Vienna (Austria).
My research focuses on algorithms for solving NP-hard problems, especially graph and reasoning problems, with applications in Boolean satisfiability, computational social choice, constraint satisfaction, and resource allocation.
Keywords: exponential time algorithms; parameterized complexity; kernelization; extremal combinatorics; graph algorithms; computational social choice; resource allocation; satisfiability; constraint satisfaction
