Research Profile

Irina Kostitsyna is an assistant professor in the Applied Geometric Algorithms group in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. Her research interests lie in the field of computational geometry, both in its theoretical and applied aspects. In particular, her main topics of research include geometric algorithms for mobile agents, including path planning and routing; and for programmable matter, including shape reconfiguration problems. 

Academic Background

Irina received her BSc and MSc in Applied Physics and Mathematics from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, and her PhD in Computer Science from Stony Brook University. After that, Irina spent two years as a postdoc in TU Eindhoven, and one year as a postdoc in Université libre de Bruxelles. In 2017 she returned to TU Eindhoven as an assistant professor.
