About me

I am currently a Simons Junior Fellow at Columbia University in NYC. Previously, I did my PhD research at Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica in Amsterdam under Daniel Dadush and received my doctorate from the Mathematical Institute of Utrecht University.

I study practical algorithms for (mixed integer) linear programming. These mathematical optimization tools are extensively used in industry and academia, and my research focusses on explaining why these algorithms perform so much better in practice than in the theoretical worst case. Related to this, I am interested in geometric and combinatorial questions about convex polytopes. For a short introduction to my work, check out my Rising Star talk which I gave during STOC 2021.

Besides research, I have made a browser plugin to use LaTeX on the chat website Slack. It can be installed in Firefox or Chrome, and source code is available on Github. The plugin has over 3500 active users.
