Scientific research - overview (read more)
- The theory research group - Discrete Methods and
Algorithms (DIMEA), FI MU Brno, CZ,
previously also Formal Methods, Logic and Algorithms (Formela).
- My research directions in brief (and current research news):
- discrete mathematics, graph theory (structural and topological), discrete geometry,
- theoretical computer science - combinatorial algorithms, parameterized complexity, logic.
- Current Ph.D. students (official listing): Deniz Agaoglu (since 2018-), Filip Pokrývka (since 2019-).
- Selected past students: Robert Ganian (Ph.D. 2012) - now TU Wien, Martin Derka (Mgr. 2013) - now at Quantstamp, Inc.. Jakub Gajarský (Ph.D. 2016), - now University of Warsaw. Onur Cagirici (Ph.D. 2021) - now Ryerson University..
- Collaborators - see the research page...
- Research opportunities for students (more details):
- try the bonus assignments offered in IB000, and continue in my advanced seminars and courses;
- e.g., attend the seminar FI:IV119 Seminar on Discrete Mathematical Methods (already for the second-year students),
- see an offer of bachelor/master thesis topics (IS listing) related to my research, or come to ask to the FI:IV131 Seminar of Discrete Methods and Algorithms Laboratory, and also read about scientific achievements of my students,
- consider the opportunity of a PhD study
- with stipend (good foreign applicants welcome):
Generally speaking, any theoretical research into graphs (with emphasis on structural and topological graph theory), into graph algorithms (with emphasis on parameterized complexity and logic on graphs), and some discrete geometrical problems can be discussed. See the current research topics.
