(deutsche Version)

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics. I am currently on the academic job market, seeking tenure track positions.
For more information about me check out:

I mostly think about homotopy theory, particularly if it includes some category theory. Concretely I am interested in foundations of higher category theory and higher topos theory. Here is an excellent article by Emily Riehl discussing the rise of higher category theory. Here is another general science article talking about some of the things I like to think about. 

I also taught a course on higher categories. You can find the lecture notes here.

Before coming to Bonn I spent three years as a collaborateur scientifique (postdoctoral researcher) at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne working in the research group of Kathryn Hess. I was a PhD student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where I worked with my advisor Charles Rezk.
