Here is the video of my recent talk on Geometric loci in moduli spaces of curves at UNAM in Mexico City.

I am now coorganizing the special session From Hyperelliptic to Superelliptic Curves at the AMS Fall Central Meeting, University of Michigan, October 20-21, 2018.

I am a mentor for the REU program at Rutgers University in summer 2018.

I am a Hill Assistant Professor at Rutgers University, USA.

I have an AMS–Simons Travel Grant for the years 2016–2019.

I received the Outstanding Postdoc Award from the Department of Mathematics at the University of Utah, 2016.

I obtained my PhD at the Humboldt University in Berlin and the Berlin Mathematical School, Germany, under the direction of Gavril Farkas, in April 2012. Before arriving at Rutgers University, I was at the University of Georgia, USA; the Fields Institute, Canada; the University of Utah, USA; and the Leibniz University in Hannover, Germany.

My research focuses on the geometry and combinatorics of curves and their moduli spaces. You can find information about my work on this website. For any further curiosities, do not hesitate to contact me via email.
