I am a Postdoc working with Stefan Teufel and Ángela Capel Cuevas. I am interested in the mathematical analysis of quantum many body systems. Before coming to Tübingen, I obtained my PhD at ISTA under the supervision of Robert Seiringer. I completed my BSc and MSc at ETH Zurich.

Other Activities


I am a founding member of the Association of Women in Mathematical Physics (AWMP). The AWMP supports women in the field of mathematical physics, establishing a network and meeting space for them, and aims at promoting diversity and equal opportunities for all individuals in mathematical physics. For example, we organize regular online coffee meetings. Please get in touch if you are interested in our activities.

Physics Olympiad

I've been part of the Academic Committee at the European Physics Olympiad since 2021. I've been co-organizing the Swiss Physics Olympiad since 2015. This mainly involves creating and marking problems, teaching, maintaining the website, and accompanying students to international competitions.
