About me

I am a research fellow at Oxford University, supported by an Advanced Postdoc.Mobility fellowship from the Swiss National Foundation. Previously, I was a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn, a visitor at IHÉS, and a PhD student at ETH Zürich. My advisor was Damien Calaque, who is now at Université Montpellier 2.

I am interested in the intersection of mathematical physics and algebraic topology, more precisely in the mathematical study of field theories using methods from homotopy theory. My research is concerned with several questions in the realm of functorial extended field theories and higher structures using tools like factorization algebras/factorization homology and derived symplectic geometry. I am also interested in the required higher categorical foundations for using homotopy theory in the study of field theories.
