About me

Since July 2019, I am a postdoc in the Discrete Mathematics/Geometry group of Michael Joswig at TU Berlin. 

During the Summer Semester 2020 I was a substitute professor at Universität Osanbrück in the group Algebra und Diskrete Geometrie. Between February 2017 and June 2019, I was a postdoc in the Einstein Fellowship research group Nonlinear Algebra of Bernd Sturmfels at TU Berlin. 

I obtained my PhD in October 2016 at KU Leuven under the supervision of Filip Cools, Marc Coppens and Wim Veys.

Research interests

My research domains are algebraic geometry, tropical geometry and their interactions, with a focus on computational aspects. I have been working on topics involving geometric and combinatorial properties of tropical curves and surfaces, matroids and tropical linear spaces, realization spaces of polytopes, lattice polytopes and their triangulations, and Brill-Noether theory of algebraic and tropical curves.


  • Together with Michael Joswig and Bernd Sturmfels, I am PI of the project Polyhedral Geometry of Virus Capsids founded by the Berlin Mathematics Research Center MATH+. Stay tuned for more news!

  • I am one of the first recipients of the MATH+ Hanna Neumann Fellowship.

  • The special issue of Le Matematiche on Twenty-Seven Questions about the Cubic Surface is now published online.
    The issue contains articles addressing some of the 27 questions about cubic surfaces posed by Bernd Sturmfels. The questions and a summary of the current progress can be found in the introductory article of the issue.
