Introduction

Hello, I’m Jungho Ahn, a student at the Discrete Mathematics Group (DIMAG) in the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), and a Ph.D. student at the Department of Mathematical Sciences in KAIST, supervised by Sang-il Oum. In the top picture, the left is me, the middle is my advisor Sang-il Oum, and the right is my lab mate Duksang Lee. The picture was taken on Jeju Island.

My research interests lie in Structural and Algorithmic Graph Theory. More specifically, I’m interested in graph structures, graph parameters, parameterized complexity including kernelization, and approximation algorithms for graph problems.

Since March 2020, I have been running the YouTube channel FPT Complexity. You can see various lecture videos or conference talks about parameterized complexity there. If you have any comments on this channel or want to recommend other videos, channels, or playlists, please let me know via the email below. For more information about parameterized complexity, you can visit Parameterized Complexity Community Wiki.

Since October 2021, I have been organizing the KAIST Math Graduate student Seminar (KMGS) with a Ph.D. student Yeongjong Kim and a master’s student Beomho Kim from KAIST. We organized the seminar hoping that many graduate students, in the department of mathematical sciences of KAIST, communicate academically and socially with each other. If you are a graduate student in the department hoping to make a talk, please submit the abstract of your talk by following the instructions on the KMGS site. It’s fine if the contents of your talk are not published yet. Even minor results or stuff you have studied in depth are okay.

You can also see my profile on the DIMAG site. Nice to meet you!  🙂
