I am currently a Tamarkin Assistant Professor at Brown University, working with Junehyuk Jung and Jeffrey Hoffstein. Starting in July 2023, I will work for one year in Stanford as a Visiting Assistant Professor under the guidance of Kannan Soundararajan, before returning back to Brown University in July 2024.

Previously, I completed my Ph.D. in August 2023 under the supervision of Maksym Radziwill and Dimitris Koukoulopolous at McGill University.  

Previously, I did my Master's degree with distinction at ETH Zurich, where my thesis was supervised by E. Kowalski, M. Radziwill, and D. Koukoulopolous. I obtained my Bachelor degree also from ETH Zurich and my Bachelor thesis was supervised by P. Nelson.

My research interests are in the area of anayltic number theory. More precisely, L-functions,  automorphic forms, arithmetic quantum chaos, trace-functions and multiplicative number theory.
