My main area of interest is in algorithms, especially for graph problems, specializing in parameterized algorithms, reconfiguration problems, and the confluence of the two.
I am serving as co-chair of the program committee of IPEC 2017, the 12th International Symposium on Parameterized and Exact Computation.
I recently co-organized a Banff International Research Station workshop on Combinatorial Reconfiguration.
Slides from a recent overview talk on reconfiguration, given at CanaDAM 2017, can be found here.
A preprint of a survey on reconfiguration that I wrote for a special issue can be found here.
An excellent bibliography of papers relating to reconfiguration can be found here.

A list of my papers can be found at the Computer Science bibliography site.
My current teaching project involves the development and redevelopment of non-major courses. CS 231, Algorithmic Problem Solving, will be taught starting in Spring 2018. I am involved in on-going teaching for the Master of Mathematics for Teachers.
Past projects have included teaching a course for the African Institute of Mathematical Sciences. and developing courseware for the Faculty of Mathematics' Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing.
