I  received my PhD in Mathematics from the University of Rostock (Germany) in 2005. From 2005 to 2010 I worked at the University of Rostock, then for two years as a research fellow at the University of Newcastle. After finishing my habilitation at the University of Rostock in 2014, I returned as a lecturer to the University of Newcastle. Since 2018, I am at the University of New England.

Teaching Areas

I have taught a wide range of mathematics courses at the University of Rostock (Germany) and the University of Newcastle (Australia), in particular in the interface between discrete and combinatorial optimisation and Operations Research.

Primary Research Area/s

Combinatorial Optimisation; Integer Programming; Graph Theory and Combinatorics

Research Interests

I'm working in mathematical optimisation in a variety of application contexts, such as the radiation therapy planning or supply chain logistics. This includes the development and analysis of algorithms using integer programming and combinatorial optimisation, in particular network optimisation. I am also interested in combinatorial and computational aspects of social choice theory.

Research Supervision Experience

I have supervised eight Ph.D. students, one Master's student, and three Honours students. These students were working in graph theory and combinatorics or in optimisation, covering a wide range from theoretical studies to applied work within industry-driven projects.
