Starting in Oct. 2021 I am a TUM Global Postdoc Fellow at
The Technical University of Munich
From Sep. 2019 to Sep. 2021 I was a postdoc with
at TU Graz, Austria.
In August 2019 I finished a PhD in Mathematics at
The University of Western Ontario, supervised by
My main research interests are in applied and computational topology, especially applications to statistics and data analysis.
