Welcome! I am a postdoctoral researcher at WWU Münster (Germany), working in topology. I completed my PhD in mathematics at Stanford University, where my advisor was Søren Galatius, in June 2019.


Office: room 100.019 (Orleansring 10)

Address: Mathematics Münster, Orleansring 10, 48149 Münster, Germany.


I am interested in algebraic and geometric topology, especially in moduli spaces, cobordism categories, and applications of homotopy theory to geometry, with a special focus on the topology of manifolds.

I am not teaching in the academic year 2019/20.

Winter term 2020/21:

  • Michael Weiss, Leon Hendrian and I are organizing a seminar on "Configuration space integrals and diffeomorphisms". A preliminary list of talks is available here. The seminar will be held over Zoom. Please write me an email if you would like to participate and have not told me yet. We will distribute the talks at the end of September.

  • Julian Poedtke and I will organize the exercise sessions of the lecture course "Topologie I" by Michael Joachim.


See here for a list of research talks I have given, as well as talks scheduled to happen in the future.


I like taking part in conferences and workshops around the globe. See here for my recent and forthcoming travel plans.


I have always had a passion for sharing my enthusiasm for mathematics. See here for more details.
