I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in the working group of Manuel Krannich, specialising in the area of Algebraic Topology. Before that, I was a doctoral and postdoctoral researcher at the University of Bonn and the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn, in the working group of Carl-Friedrich Bödigheimer.

My research interests lie in the area of Algebraic and Geometric Topology: more specifically, I am interested in configuration spaces and topological moduli spaces, topological operads and their algebras, factorisation homology, automorphisms of manifolds and manifold bundles, as well as cobordism categories.
