I work as an Assistant Professor in Maastricht University (Netherlands). Previously, I was a postdoc researcher in Ola Svensson’s group at EPFL, Lausanne (Switzerland). Before that I have received my Ph.D. in computer science at CAU, Kiel (Germany) where I was adviced by Klaus Jansen. I am alumni of the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes (German Academic Scholarship Foundation). I will serve or have served in the program committees of MAPSP’24, ICALP’24, APPROX’23, SODA’23, and WAOA’20. I am grateful to the NWO for funding my Open Competition M1 project ``Twilight Zone of Efficiency: Optimality of Quasi-Polynomial Time Algorithms”.
In my personal life, I’m married and I have two dogs and a cat. Some of my hobbies can be seen in the gallery below.You can find my CV here.
Newest lockdown project (name's Friedel).
What I learned from the French (instead of the language).
I am very grateful for receiving the award for the PhD of the year by the 'Förderverein der TF' of Kiel University
My wife Faiza and I have married in fall 2019.
I'm a big fan of winter sports, in particular, of snowboarding.
One of my hobbies is to brew my own beer.
Doing dog things on Gornergrat.
