About me



I am a postdoc at Georgia Tech, working with Joe Rabinoff and Matt Baker.

Before I was part of the project “Tropical Approaches to Arakelov Geometry” in the SFB “Higher invariants” at University of Regensburg.

I received my PhD at University of Regensburg in 2017, where my supervisors were Prof. Dr. Klaus Künnemann and Prof. Dr. Walter Gubler.

You may wish to consult my CV.

Coming Up

From January to April I will be part of the Trimester Program “Tropical Geometry, Amoebas and Polytopes” at the Institute Mittag-Leffler in Stockholm, Sweden.

Research Interests

I am interested in algebraic geometry, tropical geometry and number theory. More specifically I am interested in  non-archimedean and tropical geometry and their applications to arithmetic geometry. I study differential forms on tropical varietes and Berkovich spaces and also (pluri-)potential theory on Berkovich spaces. I am further interested in applications of all of these in Arakelov geometry.
