I am a postdoc at IHES, under the mentorship of Fanny Kassel.
I completed my PhD at ETH under the supervision of Marc Burger.
Before coming to ETH, I studied at the University of Bonn.
My research interests lie in differential geometry, Lie theory and (higher) Teichmüller theory.
In particular, I like to think about discrete subgroups of Lie groups, for example of SL(n,ℝ).
Recently, I have become interested in the case when we replace ℝ by some (nonArchimedean, ordered) valued fields, and their relations to degenerations of real phenomena.
