Office Hours

 Regarding times when I am available, please check my diary and e-mail me for an appointment. My Office Hours are also in my diary.

Curriculum Vitae

  • You can find a brief CV here.

Research

Some of my main research interests are:

  • Approximation and on-line algorithms for combinatorial optimization problems
  • Algorithmic aspects of communication networks
  • Algorithmic graph theory

For details, please refer to my list of publications here (manually maintained) or here (generated from a database). There is also a webpage with slides of a few talks I have given.

I am also interested in technology-enhanced learning and human-computer interaction.

Past Projects

Program Committees

I was/am involved in the program committees of the following recent/upcoming conferences and workshops:

Older News

  • The following book has been published:
    Algorithms Unplugged

    B. Vöcking et al. (Eds.), Algorithms Unplugged, Springer, 2011.

    The book presents some of the most beautiful algorithmic ideas in 41 articles written in colloquial, nontechnical language. (I wrote the chapter "Majority - Who Gets Elected Class Rep?".) The aim of the book is to communicate the fascination of algorithms and computer science to high-school students. The book can be understood without any prior knowledge of algorithms and computing.

  • Algorithm of the Week:
    Algorithmus der Woche This was an initiative of the Fakultätentag Informatik in Germany. For one whole year, a different algorithm was presented each week, in a manner accessible to high school students.
  • The work on the following book has been completed:
    LNCS3418

    U. Brandes and T. Erlebach (Eds.), Network Analysis - Methodological Foundations, LNCS Tutorial 3418, Springer Verlag, 2005.

    This book is the product of GINA (GI-Dagstuhl Seminar on Network Analysis).

    Thanks to all contributors!
