Profile picture

I am on the market for a job starting Fall 2020.

I will be visiting Matthias Schütt at the Institute of Algebraic Geometry in Leibniz University of Hannover (LUH) from April to September 2020.

I am currently (01.05.17 – 30.04.20) a postdoctoral researcher in Max-Planck-Institute MiS, Leipzig, working with Mateusz Michalek and Bernd Sturmfels.  

I obtained a PhD in Mathematics at Humboldt University of Berlin with a 6 month stay at University of Amsterdam.  My doctoral advisor was Gavril Farkas and my co-advisor on the Dutch side was Gerard van der Geer.

Research Interests

Moduli spaces in algebraic geometry, in particular moduli spaces of curves with various embellishments.
Projective geometry with an emphasis on enumerative problems.
Computation of periods and Picard rank of surfaces in projective space (try PeriodSuite).
Numerical algebraic geometry. Arithmetic of periods of algebraic varieties.
