In February 2022, I joined UNSW Sydney as a Lecturer (Assistant Professor, tenure-track) in the School of Mathematics and Statistics.

Prior to that, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences (MPI MiS) in Leipzig working in the Convexity, Optimization and Data Science research group lead by Venkat Chandrasekaran and affiliated to the Nonlinear Algebra  group of  Bernd Sturmfels.  From 2019-2021, I was a  Stefan E. Warschawski Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics of the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) where my postdoc mentors were Jiawang Nie and  Bill Helton. I spent Fall 2018 as a Semester Postdoctoral Fellow at Brown University in the Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) participating in the semester program on Nonlinear Algebra.
In May 2018, I completed my PhD at the Goethe-Universität in Frankfurt am Main under the supervision of Thorsten Theobald.
