Hi! My name is Vladislav Taranchuk, though I usually just go by Vlad. I received my Ph.D. under Dr. Felix Lazebnik at the University of Delaware in May 2023. My CV (December 2022) is available for viewing here.
I have a passion for research in mathematics, particularly in the areas of extremal combinatorics, algebraic graph theory, and finite geometry. A list of my publication, pre-prints, presentations, and related links can be found under the Research tab.
I also have a passion for teaching! More information about my teaching experience, as well as access some teaching materials can be found under the Teaching tab.
When I’m not doing math, I enjoy playing guitar, and have even dabbled in writing some cinematic music. It has been a while since I have written any music, and I cannot say when I will be able to return to it, but if you are interested, then you can visit my soundcloud here.
I also have been developing an interest in running. My most recent accomplishment was running the Philadelphia Marathon in 2021. I finished in about 4 hours and 40 minutes, and now have plans to improve that time as much as I can before my next marathon. I also enjoy hiking outdoors, the picture above is one that I took myself at Yosemite National Park.
