**Career**

**Since 2019:**PhD student, DAMTP, University of Cambridge**2019:**Visitor at University of Wisconsin-Madison, Heidelberg University and ICTP Trieste**2015-2018:**MSc Physics, Heidelberg University**2016-2017:**MASt Applied Mathematics, Part III, University of Cambridge**2012-2015:**BSc Physics, Heidelberg University

**Research interests**

My research interests include in particular string phenomenology, quantum gravity, cosmology and non-perturbative aspects of QFT. Specifically, I work on higher-derivative corrections in string theory and their effects on EFTs from compactifications to lower dimensions. Moreover, I study vacuum transitions in field theories with gravity and their implications on early universe cosmology. In a different context, I apply methods from Machine Learning, Search Optimisation and Topological Data Science to study the landscape of string theory vacua.
