Welcome! I am a Junior Professor for Number Theory in the Algebra and Geometry Group at Goethe University Frankfurt am Main. My position in Frankfurt is supported by the LOEWE-Schwerpunkt Uniformized Structures in Arithmetic and Geometry. My research interests are in combinatorial algebraic geometry with a particular focus on tropical and non-Archimedean geometry and the geometry of moduli spaces. I am currently supervising two Ph.D.-students: Felix Röhrle and Pedro Souza.
From October 2018 until March 2019 I was a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at the University of Warwick, hosted by Diane Maclagan. 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.
A regular afternoon seminar series on tropical geometry and neighboring fields (currently held via Zoom). The next few dates are the following:
4. December 2020
22. January 2021
19. February 2021
My coorganizer is Lorenzo Fantini.
