I am an Assistant Professor at the University of South Alabama. I obtained my Ph.D. at the University of Bonn and the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn under the supervision of Catharina Stroppel in July 2017. Before moving to Alabama in August 2021, I was a Limited Term Assistant Professor at the University of Georgia and a Research Fellow at the University of Melbourne.
