Curriculum Vitae

Since February 2020, I am a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow in the EuroTechPostdoc Programme at the Department of Mathematics at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), working with the Applied & Computation Topology group of Ulrich Bauer. At the Institute of Mathematics at EPFL in Lausanne I am working with the Laboratory for Topology and Neuroscience of Kathryn Hess-Bellwald.

My research interests include topological and geometric combinatorics, stochastic topology, computational combinatorics, computational discrete geometry, computational topology, topological data analysis, configuration spaces, and motion planning.

Coding Skills

Coding Languages

SAGE, Python, R, Ruby, Matlab, and Sonic-Pi

I use coding in my research for doing computational experiments, simulations, data analysis, mathematical modeling, and as an educational resource in workshops.

Game Developing

Unity (in C#)

My first game with Unity was developed for the film "Broken Brecht" by Caroline Kapp and Manon Haase, Brechtfestival Augsburg, Germany (Mar 2021).

Microcontrollers (Internet of Things)

Arduino, Raspberry Pi, micro:bit, and Gamebuino

I use microcontrollers for developing projects and as an educational resource in workshops.

Computer-Aided Design (CAD)

Maya (Python), Marmoset, Blender, Slinder

I use CAD also for 3D printing. Have a look at some of my 3D models on Sketchfab.
