I am an Assistant Professor at ETH.
I did my Phd in Oxford and my advisor was Cornelia Druţu.
Here is my CV (last update: April 2017).
My main research area is geometric group theory, and
I'm especially interested in generalisations of hyperbolic groups.
You may wish to take a look at my blog.

I'm writing lecture notes on Geometric Group Theory. Please let me know if you have comments, corrections, complaints....
