I have moved to the Algebraic Topology group of the Laboratoire Analyse, Géométrie et Applications at Université Paris 13. My main website is

Until September 2015 I was a postdoc at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, in the research group of Michael Weiss. Before that, I was a PhD student in the Topology group at the University of Oxford, under the supervision of Ulrike Tillmann.

My research interests are in algebraic and geometric topology, so far focusing on different kinds of configuration spaces and spaces of submanifolds, and the phenomenon of homological stability.
