I am currently a Postdoctoral Research and Teaching Associate at the University of Georgia – USA.

I am visiting ETH Zurich from May 1 till June 9, 2017.

I have an AMS–Simons Travel Grant for the years 2016–2018.

In 2016 I received the Outstanding Postdoc Award from the Department of Mathematics at the University of Utah.

In April 2012 I defended my thesis, conducted at the Humboldt University in Berlin and the Berlin Mathematical School – Germany, under the direction of Gavril Farkas. Before arriving at the University of Georgia, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Fields Institute – Canada, the University of Utah – USA, and the Leibniz University in Hannover – Germany.

My main interest is algebraic geometry, in particular the geometry and intersection theory of moduli spaces of curves, enumerative geometry, Hurwitz theory, vector bundles and problems of Brill-Noether type, spin structures on curves, curves on surfaces.
