Raffaella works on discrete mathematics and graph theory. She will use the Startpremie to set up an exchange program with mathematicians at the Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics in Budapest – the world’s capital of graph theory since Paul Erdős. This will enable Raffaella and her students to visit Budapest, and a substantial number of Hungarian colleagues to visit the VU in the upcoming years. She will also use the prize to organize an international conference on graphs and hypergraphs in Amsterdam.
