Neža Mramor Kosta, PhD


I am a mathematician teaching computer science students math. My research interests are connected to topology and its applications to computer science. Lately I have been working mostly in computational topology. Computational topoogy is an exciting growing field on the border between mathematics and computer science, the central topic of the European Science Foundation networking programme  Algebraic and Computational Topology. I am also a member of the Institute for Mathematics, Physics and Mechanics of Slovenia.
