(January 2021). Along with others in the Department of Mathematics at LSE, I will be organizing the (virtual) Highlights of Algorithms conference in June.
(December 2020). Congratulations to Dr. Madelon de Kemp for successfully defending her PhD thesis!
(June 2020). I am organizing the Hausdorff Trimester Program on Discrete Optimization along with Daniel Dadush, Jesper Nederlof, Laura Sanità and László Végh. It will take place in Autumn 2021.
I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the London School of Economics and Political Science (here is my LSE profile). I am also affiliated with CWI in Amsterdam. I have been awarded a VIDI grant, a TOP grant, and a VENI grant (now completed) by the NWO (the Dutch Organization for Scientific Research).
I previously held a faculty position at the Department of Econometrics & Operations Research at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Before this, I spent three years an Applied Mathematics Instructor at MIT, under the mentorship of Michel Goemans. I was a PhD student in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at McGill University, in Montreal, Canada, advised by Bruce Shepherd and Adrian Vetta. My undergraduate education was at the University of Cape Town, South Africa.
