Professor, half in the Department of Mathematics and half in the Program in Applied and Computational Math at Princeton University.


Discrete math, mostly in graph theory; I am currently working on the structure of graphs with certain induced subgraphs forbidden. In particular I am interested in the various conjectures of Gyarfas about chi-boundedness. The web pages of Maria Chudnovsky and Robin Thomas have more information about our joint work.

Here are websites for the last nine Barbados graph theory workshops: 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2022, 2022a
