About me

From September 2019 I will be a PhD student in the Operator Algebras group at UiO, supervised by Makoto Yamashita.

Academic Interests

Generally I am interested in (noncommutative) mathematics inspired by quantum theory.

More practically, at the moment I am interested in the theory of von Neumann algebras, quantum groups, and their interactions (especially approximation properties).


My background is in pure mathematics as well as theoretical (condensed matter) physics.

  • MSc: double Masters in Mathematical Sciences and Theoretical Physics, obtained 2019 in Utrecht (Honours programme, cum laude)
  • BSc: double Bachelors in Mathematics and Physics & Astronomy, obtained 2016 in Utrecht, (EMMEPH award for best physics Bachelor thesis prize, cum laude)
