I am a PhD student in Department 1: Algorithms and Complexity (head: Kurt Mehlhorn) of the Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik (MPII). I am working in the field of exact non-linear computational geometry. Parts of my work belong to the EXACUS project at MPII. EXACUS is related to the European Union's ECG and ACS projects.

Exact non-linear computational geometry.

Univariate real root isolation.
