Extra Information
Graphs are ubiquitous mathematical structures that model relational information such as information flows, social networks, and biochemical pathways. My research attempts to answer fundamental questions in the interplay between graph structure theory (minors, treewidth, grad, etc.) and geometric properties of graphs (crossing number, book thickness, metric embeddings, etc.).
