I am a postdoctoral researcher at RWTH Aachen University, in the group of Gabriele Nebe, and a guest at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences Leipzig, in the Nonlinear Algebra group of Bernd Sturmfels. My position is funded by the SFB-TRR 195 Symbolic Tools in Mathematics and their Application.

I obtained my PhD from Leiden University in September 2017: my dissertation, with title "Intense automorphisms of finite groups", was supervised by Hendrik Lenstra. After my PhD, from 2017 to 2019, I have been a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Christopher Voll at Bielefeld University. In 2019, I have joined the group of Bernd Sturmfels at the MPI MiS Leipzig.


Together with Daniele Faenzi and Josh Maglione I am organizing the workshop "Pfaffians, tensors, and applications", which will take place on 28-29-30 November 2022 at the Max-Planck-Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences in Leipzig. More information at this link.

I will participate in the following upcoming events: In February 2022, I was awarded one of 11 postdoctoral scholarships from the Daimler and Benz Foundation. A list of all the winners can be found here.

For the first time in his life, on September 24th, 2021, Manneken Pis was dressed as a mathematician! Read more
