I completed my PhD in Mathematics at TU Berlin in 2017, under the supervision of Michael Joswig in the group Discrete Mathematics / Geometry with an emphasis on tropical combinatorics.
In 2018, I was a post-doc in the Discrete Optimization group of Friedrich Eisenbrand at EPF Lausanne. In February 2019, I joined LSE as a post-doc on the ERC project ScaleOpt of László Vegh.
I like to identify discrete structures which encode the core of a problem. This can be tropical analogues of polyhedral objects, matroids, graphs, lattices etc. that help to find more efficient algorithmic solutions or to demonstrate that those cannot exist.
