Welcome to my home page!
I'm a Hermann-Weyl-Instructor at ETH Zürich,
at the Institute for Mathematical Research (FIM).
My mentor is Rahul Pandharipande.
The focus of my research is motivic homotopy theory,
which applies powerful methods of algebraic topology
to shed light on mysteries of algebraic geometry.
I did my PhD under supervision of Marc Levine
at the
Duisburg-Essen University.
And here is a story how my PhD program started: Jail-dreaming
"The more I learned, the more conscious did I become of the fact that I was ridiculous. So that for me my years of hard work at the university seem in the end to have existed for the sole purpose of demonstrating and proving to me, the more deeply engrossed I became in my studies, that I was an utterly absurd person."

Title: Avatars for algebraic K-theory in the motivic gather.town
Abstract: In this talk, we will design the motivic gather.town, invite algebraic K-theory to join the game and discuss different geometric avatars that we can offer. Warning: the game uses a lot of imagination, so bring your charger with you!
