About Me


I am a full-time Ph.D. student ad researcher at the Department of Computer Science, Masaryk University . My thesis supervisor is Petr Hliněný . My main area of interest is computational geometry. Particularly, I am interested in visibility graphs and unit disk graphs.

I am a member of Laboratory of Discrete Methods and Algorithms (DIMEA) research group.

My areas of interest

Conflict-free coloring of polygon visibility graphs

Conflict-free coloring of a simple graph is assigning colors to a subset of vertices such that every vertex in the graph sees a unique color. A polygon visibility graph is a graph that describes the visibility relations among the vertices of a given polygon.

Unit disk graph recognition on restricted domains

Recognizing of a unit disk graph is determining whether a given simple graph can be realized as an intersection graph of unit disks. A restricted domain is a pre-determined solution space where the disks are allowed to be centered.

Maximum clique of a disk set

A clique is a set of disks where each disk mutually intersect. The aim is to find such a set with maximum cardinality. It is not yet known whether this problem is tractable.
