About me

I am a researcher and work as an advanced fellow (a 5-year non-tenure-track position) at the ETH-ITS in Zürich. My field of research is mathematical physics.

Much of my research explores the interplay between moduli spaces and quantum field theory. Moduli spaces are pivotal objects in mathematics, while quantum field theory is the language of physics at the elementary particle level. I am fascinated by the connections between these two domains due to their foundational significance in their corresponding fields.

This article in Quanta Magazine gives a popular scientific account of parts of my research.
