I am a former mathematician who specialized in metric geometry. I obtained my PhD at ETH Zürich under the supervision of Urs Lang. After that I was a postdoc at the University of Fribourg working with Stefan Wenger. Subsequently, I spent two years at the MPIM in Bonn, where my mentor was Stephan Stadler

The main focus of my work was on conical bicombings, metric currents and Lipschitz extension problems.  I really enjoyed the freedom as a mathematician and was curious about many different questions not only in metric geometry. This led to publications in various fields including combinatorics, linear algebra, real analysis, and especially functional analysis. See my List of Publications for details. 

I want to thank everyone who has taken interest in my research and supported me throughout all these years in academia! I have taken the trouble to compile some of the questions that I could not solve and that interested me the most in a problem list. I hope that this list can serve as inspiration for further research in metric geometry, which is a small field that deserves to be better explored.
