About Me

Since September 2013 I have been a PhD student at the University of Copenhagen. During May and June 2015 I visited the Hausdorff Trimester Program: Homotopy theory, manifolds and field theories. I was in Berkeley visiting the MSRI January through April, 2014.
I am under the supervision of Nathalie Wahl and am interested in field theories, string topology, Hochschild- and cyclic homology and more generally in applications to mathematical physics. Currently I am developing operads and PROPs modelling algebraic structures of Hochschild complexes.
Before this, I did Part III in Cambridge and a double BSc in Mathematics and Physics at Utrecht University. For my master degree I wrote an essay named "Khovanov Stable Homotopy", supervised by Jacob Rasmussen. It was a discussion of results obtained by Lipshitz and Sarkar, explicitly constructing a stable homotopy type and Steenrod squares for knots and links.
