I did my PhD in Mathematics under the supervision of Peter Littelmann at the University of Cologne in July 2018.
In my thesis I studied toric degenerations from various points of view.
My research includes representation theory, tropical geometry and cluster algebras.
I'm interested in Khovanskii bases and Newton-Okounkov bodies which has lead (among other things) to studying superpotentials on cluster varieties.
After a short Post Doc in Bernd Sturmfels's Non-Linear Algebra group at the MPI MiS in Leipzig (August to October 2018) I moved to Oaxaca, Mexico in November 2018 for a two year Post Doc position. Afterwards, in November 2020 I will start a tenure track position at the UNAM in Oaxaca.
