About Jesper Nederlof
Jesper Nederlof is an associate professor in the Algorithms and Complexity group at Utrecht University. He received his M.Sc. in Applied Computing Science from Utrecht University (the Netherlands) in 2008, and successfully defended his PhD thesis titled `Space and Time Efficient Structural Improvements of Dynamic Programming Algorithms’ in December 2011, which he obtained at the University of Bergen (Norway). He was fortunate enough to have Pinar Heggernes as PhD supervisor. In 2012-2014, he continued the research of his PhD thesis as a postdoctoral researcher at Utrecht University funded by a NWO open competition project.
