About me

I am currently a postdoc in the Einstein Fellowship research group Nonlinear Algebra of Bernd Sturmfels at TU Berlin. 
I obtained my PhD in October 2016 from KU Leuven, under the supervision of Filip Cools, Marc Coppens and Wim Veys.

At TU Berlin I am collaborating with Michael Joswig and his group Discrete Mathematics/Geometry. For my latest research projects I am using the software polymake to make tropical and polyhedral computations.

Research interests

My research domains are algebraic geometry, tropical geometry and their interactions. I have been working on topics such as Brill-Noether theory of algebraic and tropical curves, tropical surfaces, lattice polytopes and their triangulations.
