About me

I am a researcher with teaching position at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Basel. My research subject lies in the field of algebraic geometry. I am particularly interested in the group of automorphisms/birational transformations of algebraic varieties and embedding problems of algebraic varieties. The rich automorphism groups and birational transformation groups of highly symmetric varieties is a very fascinating active research area.


Workshop "Algebraic Transformation Groups"

Together with Jérémy Blanc and Andriy Regeta, I am organizing a workshop on algebraic transformation groups in Monte Verità, Ascona, from May 5th to May 8th, 2024. Here is the webpage of the workshop.
