My PhD adviser is Alberto Cattaneo.


My research interests at the moment are in using concepts and ideas from symplectic/Poisson geometry
in a linear-algebraic and category-theoretic setting to study both pure-mathematical
questions as well as applications to the sciences.

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.

I am a participant in the Adjoint School in applied category theory.


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