I am broadly interested in Theoretical Computer Science, including applications of tools from TCS to new contexts. Curriculum Vitae.

Recently I worked on a couple of projects and participated in an awesome reading group at EPFL.

Interests

When I want to distance myself from math and CS, I take photos, read a book and write sometimes. I also enjoy playing badminton, and am naturally trying to hike and climb in Switzerland.

I have spent considerable time reading fantasy fiction books and have been certifiably obsessed with Brandon Sanderson's Cosmere in the past. I also have an unhealthy obsesion with an unlikely band/artist duo of Radiohead and Hozier.
