The other evening I ran into Isosceles. He has a great idea for a new triangle!

I am a postdoc within the Discretization project, mentored by Günter Rote at FU Berlin.
In August 2015 I plan to move to U Miami, Florida, for a tenure-track faculty position.
My research is in Discrete Geometry and Topology. I am currently interested in the following:
(1) triangulations of manifolds and their asymptotic number;
(2) convexity and combinatorics; (e.g. the polynomial Hirsch conjecture in optimization);
(3) discrete Morse theory (also from a computational viewpoint);
(4) algorithmic approaches to PL topology and simple-homotopy theory;
(5) dual graphs of projective curves;
(6) Random topology, knot theory, and continuous metrics on simplicial complexes.
Before coming here, I was a postdoc with Anders Björner at KTH, Stockholm. My PhD advisor (2010) is Günter Ziegler. Here is my cv (updated Feb. 2015).
