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

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.
