I am a Postdoc.Mobility fellow and a guest at the Nonlinear Algebra group of Bernd Sturmfels at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences in Leipzig, where I previously was a postdoctoral reseacher. Before that, I was a PhD student at the University of Bern supervised by Jan Draisma, I obtained my MSc from Leiden University supervised by Ronald van Luijk and Roland van der Veen and I obtained my BSc from Delft University of Technology supervised by Ronald van Luijk.
