Research subject: Mathematics

I am an associate professor of mathematics at the University of Gävle. My research focuses on the connections between algebraic geometry and tropical geometry. I work on tropical compactifications of moduli space and their application to classical problems such as:

  • the computation of Galois groups and more generally monodromy groups of algebraic families
  • the Severi problem on toric surfaces

I am also interested in the study of (mathematical) amoebas from the point of view of topology, singularity theory and symplectic geometry.

Before coming to Gävle, I was a post-doc and then a non-tenured assistant professor at Stockholm University, from 2017 to 2020. Before that, I was a post-doc at Uppsala University, from 2015 to 2017. I received my PhD from the university of Geneva, Switzerland, in December 2014. My advisor was Professor Grigory Mikhalkin.
