About me

I am a researcher and work as an advanced fellow (which is a 5-year postdoc position) at the ETH-ITS in Zürich. My field of research is mathematical physics. I am interested in the mathematical structures of quantum field theories.

For instance, I am working on applications of such structures to mathematical questions in topology and geometric group theory, and on the integration of ideas from algebraic geometry into the quantum field theory framework with the intention to facilitate physically relevant computations.
