I am Assistant Professor in the Department
of Mathematical Sciences at University
of Delaware in Newark,Delaware. I am interested in graph
theory and combinatorics
and their applications
to other areas of mathematics and science. We have an active Discrete
Mathematics group. I am organizing the Discrete
Math Seminar during the Spring
Semester 2013. If you would like to
give a talk, please let me know.
enjoy working with undergraduate and
graduate students. I am supervising
three Ph.D. students: Wiseley Wong,
(Ricky) Li and Jason Vermette.

I supervised one M.Sc. student Michael Tait
who defended his M.Sc. Thesis The
Alon-Saks-Seymour and Rank-Coloring
Conjectures on April 20, 2011. Michael Tait is now a Ph.D.
student at the University

2008, my mentor was Mike
Molloy) and at University
of California at San Diego
(February 2006-June 2008, my mentor was Fan
Chung). I had obtained a Ph.D. in
Math at Queen's
University at Kingston,
in 2005, a M.Sc. in Math at Queen's
in 2002 and a B.Sc. in Math/Computer
Science at University
of Bucharest, Romania
in 2000. My Ph.D. advisors were: David

If you are a student
who likes math, please drop by my office or
send me an email.
At Queen's, I used to play soccer with the
famous (at least on a 1/4 mile radius around
Queen's campus) Mel's
Angels. It must have been because
found it amusing
