I am a Reader at the University of Edinburgh. Previously I was a lecturer at the University of Zurich, postdoc at the University of Geneva, MPIM Bonn and Oxford. Before that I was a graduate student of David Ben-Zvi at UT Austin.
My interests lie at the intersection of representation theory, algebraic geometry and mathematical physics. Currently I am interested in problems involving quantum groups, derived Poisson structures and supersymmetric field theories (see the Research page for more information).
In my free time I like to play piano.
