About me

I am a PhD student at EPFL in the Laboratory for Topology and Neuroscience, where I am very fortunate to be advised by Kathryn Hess. My research interests lie in the intersection of topological data analysis, machine learning, and neural networks. I am particularly interested in applications to neuroscience and biology. Here is my CV.

Synergistic Activities

  • I am a member of the technical programme committee for the Topological Data Analysis and Its Application for Medical Data Workshop at MICCAI 2021.
  • I am a co-organizer of the Theoretical Biology Network in Western Switzerland, where we organize seminars and outreaching events to build a community of researchers working on diverse topics in mathematical and theoretical biology in Western Switzerland.
  • I co-organized the Young Topologist Meeting 2019, a conference to promote research and collaborations among PhDs and Postdocs in topology.
  • I co-organized the Workshop on Topology and Neuroscience 2019, a three days workshop to enhance the research in the intersection of topology and neuroscience.
  • I co-supervised four bachelor projects and one master project in applied topology at EPFL.
