Welcome! I am a Junior Professor in Number Theory at Goethe University Frankfurt am Main, supported by the LOEWE-Schwerpunkt Uniformized Structures in Arithmetic and Geometry.

My research areas are arithmetic and algebraic geometry, with a particular focus on the interplay between tropical, non-Archimedean, and logarithmic geometry, as well as on its applications to moduli spaces. 

Before coming to Frankfurt, I have been a Postdoc Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, a postdoctoral fellow at the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences within the thematic program on Combinatorial Algebraic Geometry as well as a Hausdorff postdoc at the University of Bonn in the group of Daniel Huybrechts. During Summer 2017 I have visited the Research Group in Nonlinear Algebra, led by Bernd Sturmfels, at the Max Planck Institute of Mathematics in the Sciences, Leipzig.

I completed my doctorate at the Department of Mathematics at Brown University with a thesis on the Tropical geometry of logarithmic schemes. My doctoral advisor was Dan Abramovich. I did my undergraduate degree in Mathematics with a minor in Physics at the University of Regensburg, where I wrote an undergraduate thesis under the guidance of Klaus Künnemann. During this time I also spent a year as a visiting graduate student at Brandeis University.
