If people do not believe that mathematics is simple, it is only because they do not realize how complicated life is.

John von Neumann

I received my Ph.D. in 2007 from the University of Michigan under the supervision of Mario Bonk. I also worked closely with Juha Heinonen during my studies. During my post-doctoral years, I was mentored by Pekka Koskela, Zoltán Balogh, and Stefan Wenger. I made my habilitation at the University of Bern in 2014 before becoming Assistant Professor at Montana State University. In 2017 I returned to Switzerland.
