I am interested in studying algorithmic problems occurring in many different areas like in the analysis of networks or computational biology. For such problems my main algorithmic approach is to exploit the structure of the input data to obtain algorithms which solve the problem exactly. Furthermore, I am interested in Algorithm Engineering to make these algorithm fast in practice such that they can solve real-world data in a reasonable time.
