Information

I am a postdoc at NTNU, Trondheim, within the geometry/topology group. This is a three year position, which I began on the 1st of August 2012.

Previously, between January and July 2012, I worked as a gjesteforsker (guest researcher) at NTNU, at the invitation of Nils Baas. Before that I was a DPhil student at the mathematical institute of the University of Oxford, supervised by Raphaël Rouquier.
