My research is in number theory, and its connections with geometry and dynamics. I am in particular interested in counting and equidistribution problems, automorphic forms, and spectral methods. Before joining UZH, I was a senior research associate at ETH (Oberassistentin) and a Hill assistant professor at Rutgers University.

Conferences and seminars
I am part of the Zurich Dynamics and Ergodic Theory group and a coorganizer of the joint Ergodic Theory and Dynamical Systems Seminar between ETH and UZH. I am also part of SwissMAP.

I am also coorganizing with Luis Garcia (UCL), Yingkun Li and Riccardo Zuffetti (TU Darmstadt) the online international seminar on automorphic form, taking place Tuesdays 1617h (CET). Website here!

In older times, I organized the Rutgers number theory seminar. The archive 20182019 is here: Fall 19,
