I am a professor at Saarland University, and affiliated to Max Planck Institute for Informatics. I am interested in theoretical computer science in general. More specifically, I study conditional lower bounds (e.g. based on the Strong Exponential Time Hypothesis) and algorithm design working mostly on optimization, strings, and computational geometry.
