  • December 2011-December 2012, I was postdotoral research associate at TU Braunschweig . I was doing my research program in collaboration with Dr. Alexander Kröller and Dr. Christiane Schmidt. I was working on the Set Covering Problem, its extensions, and its applications in solving the General Art Gallery Problems (in fact, I was working on a DFG project entitled Kunst! - Exact Algorithms for Art Gallery Variants).
