Sketch of me by Amena Assem.  Go here  to see more sketches by Amena.

I am an Assistant Professor (RTD-B) at Dipartimento di Informatica, Sapienza Università di Roma.  

Previously, I enjoyed the hospitality of Monash University with David Wood, Université libre de Bruxelles with Samuel Fiorini, Sapienza Università di Roma with Paul Wollan, Simon Fraser University with Matt DeVos and Luis Goddyn, KAIST with Sang-il Oum, and CWI Amsterdam and Maastricht University with Bert Gerards.  I completed my PhD in the Department of Combinatorics & Optimization at the University of Waterloo.  My supervisor was Jim Geelen.

I am mainly interested in graphs, matroids, and combinatorial optimization, but I enjoy dabbling in other areas as well. You can get a feel for my mathematical tastes from my MathOverflow account.  I am also an editor of the Matroid Union Blog.
