Research interests

I am interested in collections of concrete mathematical objects and in symmetries of graphs (and related objects).

Discrete ZOO

DiscreteZOO is a repository of graphs and other discrete objects. Various censuses of graphs and other objects exist on the web, and DiscreteZOO aims to give them a common home and to make them easily accessible and searchable according to some precomputed properties.
