I am a post-doc in algebraic geometry at the
Mathematisches Institut,
Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf.

I am a member of the Algebra and Number Theory
research group and my supervisor is
Benjamin Klopsch.

When in France, I am in Versailles and there I work with Nicolas Perrin.

During the academic year 2015/16 I was a postdoc at the
Mathematisches Institut,
Universität Basel,

where I was a member of the Algebra and Geometry
research group.
My supervisor there was
Jérémy Blanc.

I obtained my PhD at the
Department of mathematics,
Imperial College London.

I was a member of to the Geometry group and my supervisor was Paolo Cascini.

During the last months of my PhD, I visited IMPA for the Thematic Program on Algebraic Geometry.

My research interests are in birational geometry, especially in Fano varieties, the geography of Mori fibre spaces, effectivity results for surfaces in positive characteristic and connected subgroups of the three-dimensional Cremona group.

This is my CV and this is me.
