Tijn de Vos
I'm a PhD student in theoretical computer science at the University of Salzburg, supervised by Sebastian Forster. I obtained my master's degree in Mathematics from the University of Amsterdam, under supervision of Viresh Patel. You can find my master's thesis here.
I receieved the Young Investigators Award 2023 for up-coming researchers at the University of Salzburg
I wrote a blog about traveling for conferences: An Ode to Train Travel.
Our paper Fast 2-Approximate All-Pairs Shortest Paths is accepted to SODA 2024.
The biggest problem we will face in our lifetime might be the climate crisis. It is my opinion that everyone, but especially all scientists, have a role to play in creating a more sustainable way of living. As an individual researcher, this can include travelling by train as much as possible, adjusting eating habits to a vegetarian/vegan diet, combining multiple trips into one when feasible, and use modern tools for global collaborations. Please consider supporting the Theoretical Computer Scientists for Future initiative.
