I currently work as a Research Fellow in the group led by Filip Rindler under the ERC project SINGULARITY – Singularities and Compactness in Nonlinear PDEs.

My research interests lie mostly in Partial Differential Equations, Geometric Measure Theory and, more recently, in some aspects of the Calculus of Variations.
