About me

I'm a mathematician working in the fields of low-dimensional topology and knot theory. In particular, I'm interested in knot concordance and Khovanov-Rozansky homologies.

In April 2019, I'll start as an Emmy Noether Independent Junior Research Group Leader at the University of Regensburg.

Where I've worked and studied so far

Since August 2014 I have been a post-doc working with Sebastian Baader at the Universität Bern.

From April 2013 till April 2014 I was a research associate working with Andrew Lobb at Durham University.

My PhD thesis titled Khovanov-Rozansky homologies, knotted weighted webs and the slice genus was supervised by Christian Blanchet at the Institut de Mathématiques de Jussieu (Paris VII - Denis Diderot). The defence took place on June 28th 2013.

My Bachelor and Master are from the ETH Zurich. My Master thesis The Rasmussen Invariant of Arborescent and of Mutant Links from April 2009 was supervised by Sebastian Baader.
