With numbers and characters, relational structures (where a base set is paired up with additional information about its elements and their mutual interactions) are the third most important type of data structure. I am deeply interested in understanding the mathematical and computational properties of these entities and their applications. I also think that Computer Science offers a unique opportunity to work at the cross-road between a number of different fields. Educating young people to the fundamentals and the specific features of our discipline is my main teaching goal.
