I'm a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics.
My research focuses on the investigation of simple randomized distributed algorithms designed for global coordination tasks. For this purpose I combine techniques from discrete probability, linear algebra and the theory of distributed algorithms.
Among its many application domains, I have a strong interest in applying my research to understand the principles which underlie some behaviors of biological systems, in particular biological neural networks.
While a major part of my work is theoretical, I believe every theory should have its experiments and every algorithm should have its implementations.
My current main hobbies are learning bouldering, German and French.
