About me

I'm a PhD student of Tomáš Bzdušek and Manfred Sigrist in the Condensed Matter Theory group at the Paul Scherrer Institute and ETH Zurich in Switzerland. However, I spend a large part of my time in the Condensed Matter Theory group at the University of Zurich, where I'm an associated PhD student. In my research, I study so called topological materials, which are materials that manifest phases of matter with topological properties. Topological phases are characterized by having boundaries that behave in a way that would not be possible if the boundary was simply a separate system of lower dimension - this behavior is called an anomaly. I'm interested in various aspects including the characterization of the band structure in a multi-band picture, nodal phases, higher-order topology as well as resulting boundary and transport properties and the interplay of the topology with interactions. See research interests and publications for more details.

Outreach

Swiss Young Physicist's Tournament

I'm a board member in the association Pro IYPT-CH that organizes the Swiss version of the International Young Physicist's Tournament (IYPT), a high-school physics competition, and prepares students for the international tournament. Previously, I have also mentored students in this competition and have participated as a juror at the IYPT. Currently, I'm also an active juror at our national tournaments.
