## About

Since April 2021, I am a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute of Mathematics in Bonn.

I did my PhD at EPFL, under the supervision of Jérôme Scherer and Kathryn Hess, and graduated in February 2021.

During the Spring semester 2020, I received a Doc.Mobility grant from the Swiss National Foundation and participated in the MSRI program *Higher categories and categorification* in Berkeley.

Before, I did my BSc and MSc in mathematics at EPFL and completed my master thesis at Johns Hopkins University, under supervision of Emily Riehl.

## Research Interest

My research lies in the field of algebraic topology, and focuses on different aspects of higher category theory and homotopy theory.

I am in particular interested in 2-dimensional category theory: 2-categories, double categories, and (∞,2)-categories.

## PhD and Master Thesis

PhD Thesis: **Homotopical relations between 2-dimensional categories and their infinity-analogues**

In my PhD thesis, I studied the homotopical relations between 2-dimensional categories and their ∞-analogues. It is a compilation of the papers *A 2Cat-inspired model structure for double categories* and *A model structure for weakly horizontally invariant double categories*, joint with Maru Sarazola and Paula Verdugo, and my paper *A double (∞,1)-categorical nerve for double categories*. In the first two papers, we construct two different model structures on the category of double categories which are compatible with Lack’s model structure on the category of 2-categories through the horizontal embedding. In the last paper, I construct a nerve functor from double categories to double (∞,1)-categories, which has the correct homotopical properties, and I show that it restricts along the horizontal embedding to a nerve functor from 2-categories to (∞,2)-categories in the form of 2-fold complete Segal spaces.
