Research topics: Pursuit-evasion games, (distributed) Algorithms, Graph theory, Communication networks

My main concern is to design efficient algorithms for solving problems arising in telecommunication networks. Since most of these problems are NP-hard in general, I try to use structural properties of considered networks to derive polynomial-time exact or approximation algorithms in particular graph classes. One powerful tool I use to determine and to understand the algorithmic interest of graph structures is pursuit-evasion games. In these games, a team of searchers/pursuers/cops aims at capturing a fugitive/evader/robber moving in a graph.
