Research Interests

I am a fourth year Computer Science PhD student in the group of Prof. Dr. Angelika Steger at ETH Zürich. I received my Master's degree in Theoretical Computer Science from ETH Zürich in 2019 and my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from Princeton University in 2017. My research focus is on Extremal and Probabilistic Combinatorics, Graph Theory and Random Graphs.
