Senior Scientific Researcher
Research Interests

Discrete Mathematics, Graph Theory and Combinatorics. Existence problems of long (large) cycles and paths in graphs, as well as spanning trees in graphs with few end vertices (leaves) and few branch vertices - in forms of various generalizations and improvements of classical results based on minimum degree, connectivity, toughness, forbidden subgraphs and outside structures.

 Specialised Council

The EU is pleased to support since 2015 the Eastern Partnership Connect project and its efforts to provide not only physical networks to interconnect Eastern Partnership (EaP) and other countries with high-speed broadband connections, but also its efforts to build online services for research and education, to extend its reach beyond supporting big science and research and to offer support also to the arts and humanities. Projects like this are of strategic importance to help bring EaP and European neighbours closer together
said the European Commission Directorate-General for Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations’ Neighbourhood East Director Lawrence Meredith.
