Lehrstuhl für Informatik 8 (Theoretische Informatik)
I am a PhD student in the Chair of Theoretical Computer Science at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg. I am funded as member of the Research Training Group 2475 “Cybercrime and Forensic Computing” under the supervision of Lutz Schröder.
Previously, I completed the Master of Logic (specialization: mathematics) at the Institute for Logic, Language, and Computation of the University of Amsterdam. My MSc thesis concerns the expressive power of first-order logic on trees (supervisors: Yde Venema and Sam van Gool), and is available here. I have also obtained a first degree in Mathematics (The Evergreen State College, 2015), and participated as a student in the Budapest Semesters in Mathematics (Spring 2015). My Erdős number is 4.
A full CV is available upon request.
I am broadly interested in the development and application of categorical and logical methods to problems in (the foundations of) computer science. More specifically, my recent interests include:
- universal (co)algebra and category theory
- graded monads
- logic, games, and verification
