Work and Education

Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher at the MPIM Bonn in Germany. Before, I was part of the Algebra Group led by Jiří Rosický and John Bourke in the Department for Mathematics and Statistics at Masaryk University in Brno, CZ. I completed my PhD with Nicola Gambino at the University of Leeds, UK, in 2019 studying various classes of homotopy theories with a view towards their higher categorical semantics of Homotopy Type Theory. I did my BSc (2012) and MSc (2014) in Mathematics at the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhems-Universität Bonn in Germany with a focus on algebraic topology, set theory and mathematical logic.

My research activities are centered around univalent type theory and higher category theory, and as such are directed towards their aspects in homotopical algebra and higher topos theory.
