I'm an MSc student majoring in Mathematics at ETH Zürich.

I spent Fall 2022 visiting Steve Oudot at INRIA Saclay as an intern.

My interests lie at the interface between pure and applied math, for example topological data analysis (TDA).

My bachelor's thesis entitled Examining Persistent Homology from Three Different Theoretical Perspectives was supervised by Sara Kališnik.

- During a reading course on expander graphs supervised by Afonso Bandeira, I wrote an exposition about the Alon-Bopanna bound . The bound motivates the definition of Ramanujan graphs and is critical to the theory of expander graphs.
- My final project for Algebraic Geometery 2 introduces Whitney stratifications with a view toward intersection homology . It draws from various sources and describes why algebraic varieties admit Whitney stratifications and the role these stratifications play in the definition of intersection homology.
