I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Oxford. My research interests include universal algebra, model theory, Ramsey theory and their application in theoretical computer science.
Since October 2020 I'm employed in ERC grant Power of Algorithms in Discrete Optimisation lead by Standa Živný
I finished my PhD in 2017 at TU Wien under the supervision of Michael Pinsker, for my academic family tree, see here.
