Currently I work at the Institute for Geometry at TU Dresden, hosted by Andreas Thom, supported by the Humboldt Foundation. Since September 1, 2016 I have been on unpaid leave from the Institute of Mathematics of the Czech Academy of Sciences where I hold a researcher position.

I am interested in discrete mathematical structures, and graphs in particular. Most of my work has been in extremal graph theory. I also work on the recently emerged theory of graph limits, and on the links this theory provides to fields such as real analysis and probability theory.

Several problems I like may be suitable as student projects and I would be happy to discuss them. However, currently I do not have the capacity to oficially supervise students in Prague. If you are a hard-working student interested in extremal graph theory, graph limits, random graphs, or similar you may want to talk to the members of the Extremal graph theory group at the Institute of Computer Science of the Czech Academy of Sciences.


Current projects



Zdenek Dvorak and I organized in August 2016 the first edition of what we hope to become a tradition of biennial Prague Schools on Discrete Mathematics. More can be found here. An article about the School appeared in the last issue of the Academic bulletin. [here]

I organised (with Artur Czumaj an Diana Piguet) Workshop on Extremal and Probabilistic Combinatorics in July 2010 in England.

I organised (with Marek Krcal Bernard Lidicky, and Zuzana Safernova) Spring Schools in Combinatorics 2007 and 2008 in Czech Republic.
