I am Till. My official name, which I use on my papers, is Tillmann Miltzow. I am from Berlin, where I finished school in Pankow in 2004. Thereafter, I studied Mathematics at the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin. I did my Diploma thesis(=Master thesis) with Stefan Felsner at the Technical University of Berlin. In order to visit all three major universities in Berlin, I worked on my PhD under the guidance of Günter Rote at the Freie Universität Berlin from 2010 to 2015. Thereafter, I did a postdoc in Budapest at MTA SZTAKI in the group of Dániel Marx. Thereafter, I joined the group of Jean Cardinal and Stefan Langerman. I stayed for another year in Brussels to learn about Combinatorial Optimization in the group of Sam Fiorini. I have recently been award a Veni grant and start in the group of Marc van Kreveld in Utrecht in 2018.
My research activity is mainly in Computational Geometry. But I am also more broadly interested in all fields of Algorithms and Discrete Geometry. Currently, the classic variant of the Art Gallery Problem and the Existential Theory of the Reals are my research focus.
Note that I made videos to various of my papers. If you are interested in one of my papers, this might help to get a quick overview. I am still experimenting with the right format. I try now to make these videos within 7 minutes. Older videos are longer.
If you consider me as a reviewer for a journal please read my short notes.
Recently, I receive many unsolicited applications. Please read at least one of my publications, before you send me such an email.
