## Robert Hancock

I am a postdoctoral researcher at Heidelberg University, where I am a member of the Theoretical Computer Science group headed by Felix Joos. My position is sponsored by a Humboldt research fellowship. My research interests lie in extremal graph theory and additive combinatorics.

From January 2019-September 2020 I was at Masaryk University in Brno, working with Dan Kráľ. From July-December 2018 I was at the Czech Academy of Sciences, working with Jan Hladký. Before that I was a 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.
