I am a Junior Professor at the Universität Heidelberg. Before that I was a Bateman instructor at Caltech.

My research is in differential geometry, Teichmüller theory, and geometric structures. I am also interested in general relativity and other connections to physics.

In spring 2023, I am teaching Differential Geometry I at Heidelberg.

I am a contributor to the project Organic Materials by Geometrical Design at the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies.

I am co-organizing Heidelberg's HEGL community seminar.
