Title of Project:
 Graph Packing: Modeling real-life matching problems
Advisor: Gexin Yu
Honors Department: Mathematics

I will be studying graph packing with constraints, which is a generalized representation of real life situations such as roommate assignment, flight assignment, job placement, etc. I hope to explore a new field in graph theory where only a few papers have been published.

The Honors Fellowship has given me the opportunity to conduct research and to learn about graph theory from a different approach.
