About me

I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow of the Swiss NSF at Johns Hopkins. I got my PhD in 2017 at EPF Lausanne (Switzerland), under the supervision of Kathryn Hess. Starting July 2019, I will be an MSI fellow at the Australian National University. I am a coorganizer of the JHU topology seminar, together with Valentin Zakharevich.


My interests are in algebraic topology, homotopy theory and higher category theory.

My PhD thesis focused on the study of homotopy invariants of principal bundles and geometric interpretations of characteristic classes.

I am interested in the homotopy theory of higher categories. My current research, joint in different combinations with Julie Bergner, Daniel Fuentes-Keuthan, Magdalena Kedziorek, and Viktoriya Ozornova, focuses on establishing and comparing models of (∞,n)-categories, and in developing certain aspects of the theory of (∞,1)-categories.

I also have a series of papers on the topic of 2-Segal spaces (joint with Julie Bergner, Angélica Osorno, Viktoriya Ozornova and Claudia Scheimbauer).
