Welcome to my webpage! I am an associate professor at
UP FAMNIT (the
Faculty of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Information Technologies) and a senior research fellow at
UP IAM (Andrej Marušič Institute) at the
University of Primorska in Koper, Slovenia.
Between July 2007 and February 2009, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Faculty of Technology at
Bielefeld University, in the junior research group
Combinatorial Search Algorithms in Bioinformatics (at AG Genome Informatics), led by Prof.
I received my PhD from RUTCOR, Rutgers
where I worked under the supervision of Prof. Vadim Lozin.
My PhD thesis is available here.
CV (as of April 2018)
Discrete Mathematics, with an emphasis on Graph Theory and Hypergraphs including:
Algorithmic graph theory,
Study of independence and domination graph invariants,
Structure and characterizations of graphs in hereditary classes,
Applications of combinatorial optimization and graph theory to computational biology.
I have also done some work in the design and analysis of competitive algorithms for evaluation of Boolean functions and game trees.
