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, and analogous questions for tournaments. In particular I am interested in the Erdos-Hajnal conjecture, and in the various conjectures of Gyarfas and Sumner about chi-boundedness. The web pages of Maria Chudnovsky and Robin Thomas have more information about our joint work.

Here are websites for the current Barbados graph theory workshop, and two recent ones: 2014, 2015, 2016
