Professional Activities

Personal interests

My Erdös number is at most 3 (Frank Neven -> Noga Alon -> Paul Erdös).
When one would include an episode of a certain TV show, my Bacon number would be at most 4 (Natalia Druyts -> Michael Pas -> Maximilian Schell -> Kevin Bacon). Not that this stuff actually matters. Some people do seem to entertain themselves with Erdös-Bacon numbers though.

Being at the University of Dortmund is great! The view from my window provides me with constantly evolving inspiration on Rush Hour, which is known to be PSPACE-complete in general. My former university in Hasselt provided me with very useful inspiration on XML with data values.
