My main area of interest is in algorithms, especially for graph problems, specializing in parameterized algorithms, reconfiguration problems, and the confluence of the two.

A list of my papers can be found at the Computer Science bibliography site.


My current project involves the development and redevelopment of non-major courses. CS 231, Algorithmic Problem Solving, will be taught starting in Spring 2018.

I recent taught a course for the African Institute of Mathematical Sciences and developed courseware for the Faculty of Mathematics' Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing.
