About me



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

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

I received my PhD at University of Regensburg in 2016, where my supervisors were Prof. Dr. Klaus Künnemann and Prof. Dr. Walter Gubler.

You may wish to consult my CV.

Coming Up

  • On September 18th I will be speaking the Algebra and Number Theory Seminar at Emory University
  • In February 2019 I will be at Oberwolfach to participate in the Workshop “Non-Archimedean Geometry and Applications” at the MFO.

Research Interests

My main research interest lies in the field of algebraic geometry.  More specifically I am interested in non-archimedean and tropical geometry and their applications to arithmetic geometry.

  • Tropical geometry: Cohomology of tropical varieties, tropical intersections theory, Hodge theory for tropical varieties
  • Non-archimedean geometry: Tropical Dolbeault cohomology of algebraic varieties, harmonic and subharmonic functions on Berkovich spaces.

A general motivation for me to study the above mentioned objects is to unify the treatment of archimedian and non-archimedean primes in Arakelov theory.
