I am currently a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Mathematics at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver), working with prof. Lior Silberman and prof. Pablo Shmerkin. Previously, I was a Ph.D. student in the Department of Mathematics at ETH Zurich, working under the supervision of prof. Manfred Einsiedler. Starting from September 2023, I will join the Department of Mathematics at Pennsylvania State University as a Chowla Research Assistant Professor.

My main research area is dynamical systems, with connections to geometry, number theory and probability theory. For a more detailed description, see the Research page.
