I am a PhD student at the Utrecht Geometry Centre supervised by Álvaro del Pino Gómez. My research concerns differential topology, and in particular homotopy principle approaches to non-local differential relations.

Before coming to Utrecht for my MSc Mathematics, I completed an MSc Physics at TU Dortmund with a focus on particle theory.
