About Me

I am a full time teacher for mathematics and computer science in Berlin, Germany.
I was a PhD student in the Discrete Mathematics/Geometry group at TU Berlin under the supervision of Michael Joswig. My research was supported by the DFG transregional collaborative research centre (SFB-TRR 109) “Discretization in Geometry and Dynamics” and the Berlin Mathematical School.

I am interested in polyhedral geometry and its connections to various areas of mathematics, such as hyperbolic geometry and Teichmüller theory, convex projective structures and cluster algebras.
