I am a Microsoft Research Fellow for the semester program Geometry of Polynomials at the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing in Berkeley. I recently have been awarded a four-year starting grant from the Swedish Research Council (VR) for my project Alcoved polytopes --- a pathway between geometry and combinatorics. Before I was a postdoc in the combinatorics group of Petter Brändén at KTH in Stockholm and in the convex and discrete geometry workgroup of Monika Ludwig at TU Wien. I did my PhD at FU Berlin, my advisor was Raman Sanyal. During my PhD studies I was funded by a Hilda Geiringer Scholarship of the Berlin Mathematical School.
