[Research activities]

My research topic is to design and theoretically analyze algorithms for combinatorial problems, such as graph problems. I mainly work on (1) approximation algorithms, which try to find near optimal solutions, (2) online algorithms, which perform computation without knowing future information, and (3) intractability, which shows hardness of problems.

Recent results include the following:

  • Approximation algorithms for stable matching problem.
  • Online algorithms for minimum cost online matching problem.
  • Computational complexity of puzzles.
  • Graph algorithms for identifying network topology.
