My mathematical interests are Tropical Geometry and Optimization. I am also keen on applications, e.g. to phylogenetics or data science.

My M.Sc. project was on p-adic tropicalization of polytopes. I studied how the possible images look like and I tried to recover as much of the original object as possible, considering that we know the tropicalizations for different primes.
