YouTube channel

I want to help young mathematicians to deal with the psychological struggles of doing math.


For that reason, in January 2021 I started the YouTube channel "Math-Life Balance",

where I post my non-professional interviews with professional mathematicians.

I mostly ask about their personal experience in math, their struggles and lifehacks.


Interviews are uploaded on Fridays at 6 pm CET.

Podcast version is maintained by Emil Jacobsen.


Comments, critics or encouragement via e-mail are welcome.

Enjoy the videos and please spread the word!




I am making a new series of videos, "K-theory Wonderland",

which are an attempt to popularize abstract math!

Here is the first math video, and here is a masterpiece made by Jeremiah Heller. 

Feedback is very welcome!
