Research

In my research, I focus on various problems in theoretical computer scienece, in particular on distributed graph and communication algorithms. I am interested in developing fault-tolerant distributed algorithms that can withstand crash failures or Byzantine adversaries. I also like to investigate the limits of such systems, by trying to find lower bounds and derive impossibility results. Besides these topics, I enjoy working on online algorithms (with and without delays), voting theory as well as on finding possible connections between the different fields.
