Research area: Discrete Mathematics / Number Theory


I am a second-year PhD student in the research group Geometric, Algebraic and Probabilistic Combinatorics at UPC Barcelona under the supervision of Oriol Serra. Before that, I spent a year at TU Dortmund working as a research assistant in Christian Sohler's group as part of the ERC starting grant "Sublinear Algorithms for the Analysis of Very Large Graphs".

Both my Master's and Bachelor's degree were obtained at Freie Universität in Berlin. Broadly speaking, my research interests lie in the area nowadays called additive combinatorics. I am especially interested in the application of graph theoretic tools in order to obtain arithmetical results in non-abelian settings.
