About

Picture

I am a fifth year graduate student in commutative algebra at the University of Utah. My advisor is Srikanth Iyengar. I obtained a Bachelor in Mathematics in 2014 and a Bachelor in Physics in 2015 from the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany.
I am interested in derived categories.

Here is my CV.
