Academic Background

Until April 2022 I was a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow in the EuroTechPostdoc Programme at the Technische Universität München (TUM) and EPFL Lausanne. At TUM I was working with the Applied & Computation Topology group lead by Ulrich Bauer. At EPFL I was working with the Laboratory for Topology and Neuroscience lead by Kathryn Hess-Bellwald.

Project: Topological and Geometrical Data Analysis of Random Growth Models.

Until January 2020, I was Visiting Assistant Professor and Director Outreach at The Ohio State University (OSU) in the Department of Mathematics working with the Topology, Geometry, and Data Analysis (TDGA) research group.

I got my PhD in May 2018 at the Center for Research in Mathematics (CIMAT). My advisors were Matthew Kahle (OSU) and Víctor Pérez-Abreu (CIMAT).
