Martin Milanič

Welcome to my webpage! I am a professor ("redni profesor") at FAMNIT (the Faculty of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Information Technologies) and a research counsellor ("znanstveni svetnik") at IAM (Andrej Marušič Institute), both 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. Ferdinando Cicalese. I received my PhD from RUTCOR, Rutgers University where I worked under the supervision of Prof. Vadim Lozin. My PhD thesis is available here.

Research interests:

Discrete Mathematics, with an emphasis on Graph Theory and Hypergraphs including:

  • Algorithmic graph theory,
  • Study of independence and domination graph invariants,
  • Study of graph classes related to cliques and independent sets,
  • Structure and characterizations of graphs in hereditary classes,
  • Applications of hypergraphs to graph theory,
  • 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.
