My PhD adviser is Alberto Cattaneo.


I am currently studying some questions at the interesection of symplectic/Poisson geometry
and quiver/poset representation theory. For example, I am classifying various arrangements of
special linear subspaces in symplectic vector spaces. Besides being of pure-mathematical interest,
such objects also arise in various applied settings. I recently learned more about such applications
as a participant in the Adjoint School and workshop in applied category theory.

These are
articles that I’ve (co-)written:
* (Co)isotropic pairs in Poisson and presymplectic vector spaces (joint with Alan Weinstein)
* Decomposition of (co)isotropic relations (joint with Alan Weinstein)

I’ve given a couple of talks
on the above work.


I am a co-organizer of the Zurich Graduate Colloquium.
