I am a third year PhD student at the University of Geneva under the supervision of David Cimasoni. I also spent the fall of 2016 at Indiana University, Bloomington and the winter of 2017 at UQAM, Montréal. Here is a CV and here is a preliminary version of my thesis.

Research Interests :

My research interests lie in low dimensional topology. More precisely, I study various link invariants and I have a growing interest in concordance of links.
