Guest researcher

I am a researcher, lecturer and academic tutor. My affiliations are

My research interests are in mathematical logic and set theory, specifically the structure of the real line, regularity properties of sets of reals, descriptive set theory and forcing, as well as the generalized real numbers and generalized Baire spaces. I obtained my PhD at the University of Amsterdam in 2012, under the supervision of Prof. Benedikt Löwe and Prof. Jörg Brendle. I obtained my Habilitation at Hamburg University in 2018. Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Kurt Gödel Research Center for Mathematical Logic at the University of Vienna, a postdoctoral researcher at Hamburg University, and a Marie Sklodowska-Curie research fellow at Hamburg University.

At the Amsterdam University College, I teach or have taught the following courses:

In addition, I guide intensive student seminars at Hamburg University on various topics in mathematics, and regularly teach group and individual projects in advanced Set Theory at the ILLC.
