Starting from January 1 2018, I will be a postdoc at Durham University (supported by the Swiss FNS). Before that, from September 2014 to October 2017, I was a Ph.D 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.

Research Interests :

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