# Research Interests

I have so far worked mainly in the areas of

**Graph algorithms**,**Graph theory**, and**Parameterized algorithms.**

Broadly, I am interested in working on problems that are** combinatorial** in nature and also appear in **real applications**.

Some specific topics that i am working on are the following:

- Covering and partitioning of the edges of a graph with cliques/bicliques
- Binary Matrix Factorization
- Partitioning a graph into connected subgraphs
- Graph cut problems such as multi-way cut and multi-cut
