Hi! Since September 2021, I am Assistant Professor at ISTA.

Previously, I was Szegő Assistant Professor in the mathematics department of Stanford University. Before that, my doctoral studies were at ETH Zurich under the guidance of Benny Sudakov, and my undergraduate studies were at UNSW (Sydney), where my adviser was Catherine Greenhill. You can find my CV here.

Those looking to join my group as interns, students and postdocs should apply for the ISTern program, the ISTA graduate school, or the IST-BRIDGE fellowship, respectively. Currently, other applications will be considered only under exceptional circumstances and will likely not receive a response.

Update: I'm now looking to hire a postdoc directly! Please apply on mathjobs.

Together with Herbert Edelsbrunner and Uli Wagner I am hosting the Combinatorics, Geometry and Topology seminar.

In Autumn 2022 I'm teaching a graduate class on the probabilistic method. Please see the course homepage.
