I am a postdoctoral researcher in the working group of Manuel Krannich. Before that, I was a doctoral and a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Bonn, in the working group of Carl-Friedrich Bödigheimer. Further information can be found on my private website.

My research interests lie in the area of algebraic topology: more specifically, I am interested in (coloured) topological operads and their algebras, configuration spaces and their homological stability, as well as diffeomorphism groups and mapping class groups, moduli spaces of surfaces and their (unstable) homology. More recently, I have been studying low-dimensional equivariant and parametrised cobordism categories and their homotopy type.
