About me

I am currently (01.05.17 – 30.04.19) 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.
