## Robert Hancock

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Faculty of Informatics, Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic, where I am a member of the Laboratory of Discrete Methods and Algorithms (DIMEA), under the supervision of Dan Kráľ. My research interests lie in extremal graph theory and additive combinatorics.

From July-December 2018 I was at the Czech Academy of Sciences, working with Jan Hladky. Before that I was at PhD student at the University of Birmingham under the supervision of Andrew Treglown, defending my thesis in October 2018. For the final semester of my PhD studies I visited Victor Falgas-Ravry at Umeå University as an Erasmus exchange student. Between 2010 and 2014 I completed an MMath at the University of St Andrews. Here is a copy of my CV.
