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 been awarded a Veni grant and started in the group of Marc van Kreveld in Utrecht in November 2018. In 2021, I received a permanent contract as Assistant Prof. in Utrecht. In 2022, I switched to the research group of Hans Bodlaender. I will start my Vidi project in January 2023. Among the candidates in my cluster, I was ranked first. :) Let me know if you are interested to work on topics related to my Vidi.
My research activity is mainly in Computational Geometry. But I am also more broadly interested in all fields of Algorithms and Computational Complexity. In the last few years, I focus my research on the Existential Theory of the Reals.
Note that I made videos for some of my papers. If you are interested in one of my papers, this might help to get a quick overview. Check out my youtube channel!
If you consider me as a reviewer for a journal please read my short notes.
Recently, I receive many unsolicited applications. Please familiarize yourself with my research at least a bit, before you send me such an email. I update this webpage only every few years or so. Arxiv, google scholar, dblp, and Youtube are better sources to keep up to date with my recent work.

Most non-Dutch people think about tulips when they think about the Netherlands. So I have been to Keukenhof, just to find out that there are only foreigners here. 😂
