About me

Hey! I'm a PostDoc in mathematics at ETH Zürich, working in the group of Özlem Imamoglu.

My research area is number theory, more specifically the theory of modular forms. I am particularly interested in theta lifts between various spaces of automorphic forms (such as harmonic weak Maass forms) and their applications, for example in the theory of Borcherds products, in connection with periods of modular forms, and in understanding mock theta functions.

I started at ETH in the spring semester 2020, and since 2022 I'm an SNSF Ambizione Fellow at ETH. From early 2018 to early 2020 I was a PostDoc in Cologne, working as a member of the SFB-TRR 191 Symplectic Structures in Geometry, Algebra and Dynamics with Kathrin Bringmann and Silvia Sabatini. I obtained my PhD in 2018 in Darmstadt under supervision of Jan Hendrik Bruinier.
