I am mostly doing algorithm engineering, i.e., I work on the design, implementation and analysis of efficient algorithms; "analysis" can be both theoretical and experimental. Topics I often touch:

  • Parallel processing and communication in networks
  • Solving problems with "irregular" structure
  • Randomized algorithms

In particular, I often look at problems in the cloud of the following:

  • (Hyper-)Graph Partitioning and Graph Clustering
  • Independent Sets, Longest Paths, Graph Generation, Matchings
  • Graph Drawing
  • Minimum Cuts
  • Process Mapping

An almost up to date list of my publications and academic activities can be found in my CV.

Student Theses

We have a lot of theses available for students. You typically should have a large interest in algorithms and data structures, excellent programming skills in C++ and most importantly the ability to think for yourself. Please send me an email if you want to start with us. Currently open topics include:

  • Graph compression
  • Linear-time graph drawing
  • Speedup techniques for irregular sparse All-To-All or other collective operations
  • Dynamic matching algorithms
  • Dynamic all-pair electrical flows in practice
  • Local Search for the Weighted Independent Set Problem
  • Multi-constraint graph partitioning
