- I am a postdoc working with Charl Ras on Steiner tree related algorithms.
- I was previously a postdoc in the Algorithms Research Group at Université Libre de Bruxelles.
- I obtained my PhD in maths at the University of Melbourne under the supervision of David
Wood, who is now at Monash University.
- My research interests centre around discrete geometry and geometric graph theory.
- Together with Helmut Alt and Jens Schmidt from Theoretical Computer Science at FU Berlin, David Wood and I were awarded a Go8/DAAD Joint Research Co-Operation Scheme
grant for 2011/2012.
- I did 'Phase I' at the Berlin Mathematical School.
- I did my undergraduate studies in Australia at Monash University.

Here is my PhD Thesis. Here are some lp_solve files related to a conjecture of Kleitman and Pinchasi (see Chapter 6). Note this is not the latest version. For that see the Bichromatic Lines paper and related files above.
