I am currently a tenure track researcher at CWI in the Networks & Optimization group. Previously, I was a Simons Postdoctoral Fellow for 2 years at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University. I completed my PhD in 2012 within the ACO (Algorithms, Combinatorics, and Optimization) program at Georgia Tech under Santosh Vempala (Professor of Computer Science).

- I was awarded an ERC Starting grant for the project "Towards a Quantitative Theory of Integer Programming" (see link for the press release). The project will start in January 2019 and run for 5 years. I am now looking for 2 talented PhD students and one Postdoc. Please see the official openings here (application deadline is December 15th): Phd Positions and Postdoc Position.

- I organized a workshop on Discrepancy Theory and Integer Programming, June 11-15 at CWI. Slides for the talks are available on the website.

- Ph.D.:
- Huck Bennett (joint with Chee Yap). Graduated August 2017. Currently Postdoc @ Northwestern University.

- M.Sc.:
- Sophie Huiberts. Graduated December 2017.

- Interns:
- Huck Bennett . Fall 2016.
- Venkata Gandikota . Fall 2016.
