## Teaching / Výuka

### ZS 17/18 (winter semester 17/18)

**České cvičení z Úvodu do aproximačních a pravděpodobnostních algoritmů**– v úterý od 17:20 v S1 v liché týdny semestru (sudé kalendářní).**English exercise session for Introduction to approximation and randomized algorithms**– on Mondays at 15:40 in S7 in even semester weeks (odd calendar weeks), Czech students are also welcome.

Teaching in previous years (in Czech only) / Výuka v předchozích letech

## Research interests

- Mainly approximation and online algorithms, mostly some variants of scheduling and bin packing.
- Techniques for designing approximation algorithms, mainly linear and semidefinite programming.
- Fixed parameter tractable (FPT) algorithms, in particular FPT approximation.

## Projects

Selected work (see also publications below):- Packet Scheduling, which will be the topic of my PhD thesis (papers
**Online Packet Scheduling with Bounded Delay and Lookahead**and**On Packet Scheduling with Adversarial Jamming and Speedup**) - FPT approximation, breaking both FPT and approximation lower bounds (paper
**Parameterized Approximation Schemes for Steiner Trees with Small Number of Steiner Vertices**) - Online Coloring (paper
**Online Chromatic Number is PSPACE-Complete**) - Colored Bin Packing (master thesis, paper)
- Waltz: a strong Tzaar-playing program (bachelor thesis and a paper)
