What are your research interests?

Randomized Algorithms, Probabilistic Techniques, Approximation Algorithms, Designing and Analyzing Algorithms in general.

What’s one problem you’d like to solve with your research/work?

Currently, I’m working on information spreading over dynamic networks, where the network is changing by an adversary by adding or removing edges. The goal is to find an efficient distributed algorithm (token-forwarding) that finish this task in a hopefully sub-quadratic time.

What are your research or career goals, going forward?

Obtaining research skills, improving my problem solving skills.
