Dr Jakub Opršal

Post Doctoral Research Assistant

I am currently a post-doc at the Department of Computer Science of Durham University. Working on the project of Andrei Krokhin on The Complexity of Promise Constraint Satisfaction.

You can contact me by email at jakub.oprsal (at) durham.ac.uk.

RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research is focused on the study of identities and equational theories in universal algebra, and applications to theoreof to computational complexity, constraint satisfaction, and its approximation.

The current project is focused on identities that do not involve composition, and approximate graph coloring.
