**Education**

*2022:* Visiting postgraduate research student at the University of Southampton from August to December

*2019–present:* PhD in Mathematics under the supervision of A. Adem (in progress)

*2018–2019:* MSc in Mathematical Sciences, University of Oxford, UK

*2015–2018:* Mathematics BSc, ETH Zurich, Switzerland

**Research Interests**

My general research area is group theory. More specifically, I have written a preprint on right-angled Artin groups and am writing my thesis on a generalisation of Tate cohomology. Moreover, I am applying condensed mathematics to address a question about cohomology of pro-p groups for which my thesis work is relevant. The underlying theme of all my projects is the quest of understanding the structure of groups. For this I like to employ homological, geometric or combinatorial methods or to look at the topology of a group.
