My current focus in on the principles of distributed computing: I want to understand the fundamental properties of networks that limit how efficiently we can solve various distributed tasks (e.g., solving optimization problems such as the minimum spanning tree on a network). My other interests include approximation algorithms and leveraging continuous optimization for discrete problems.
Short BiographyI am a postdoc at ETH Zurich, in the research group of Prof. Mohsen Ghaffari. I received my Ph.D. from the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University under the advisorship of Prof. Bernhard Haeupler with the thesis titled Towards Universal Optimality in Distributed Optimization. Earlier, I obtained my B.Sc. and M.Sc. from University of Zagreb under the advisorship of Prof. Mile Šikić.
I am extremely honored to have received the 2021 ACM-EATCS Principles of Distributed Computing Doctoral Dissertation Award. Earlier, I was also awarded the 2018 DFINITY Scholarship.Links: my CV my fledgling blog
