New Assistant Professor: Jiehua Chen

In October 2019, Jiehua Chen has joined the Algorithms and Complexity Group on a tenure track position. 

Jiehua's research interests are the parameterized complexity of, and the design and analysis for, combinatorial problems arising in contexts such as optimization related to graphs and hypergraphs, computational social choice, and preference-based stable matchings.

Jiehua is the principal investigator of a Vienna Research Group in ICT project, which is funded by the Vienna Science and Technology Fund (WWTF), which is comparable both in competitiveness as well as funding volume with an ERC starting grant. The project's title is "Structural and Algorithmic Aspects of Preference-based Problems in Social Choice" and its proponent is Stefan Szeider..
