Postdoctoral researcher associated to the Zahlentheorie Lehrstuhl of Michael Dettweiler; recently Principal Investigator in the research program SPP1786 on homotopy theory and algebraic geometry coordinated by M. Levine (2015-18). My previous positions were in Michael Weiss' Leray AG in Algebraic Topology at WW Universität Münster and at the Institute of Mathematics of Jussieu - PRG at Paris 6 University Pierre and Marie Curie.


My research focuses on various aspects of the Arithmetic Geometry of moduli stacks of curves in terms of the Deligne-Mumford and the stack inertia stratifications. My approach covers the topics of simplicial and homotopical algebraic geometry -- i.e. model category and motivic considerations for stacks à la Morel-Voevodsky --, of the arithmetic of the geometry of curves -- e.g. G-covers, irreducible components of Hurwitz spaces, étale fundamental group --, methods from Grothendieck-Teichmüller theory -- e.g. mapping class groups, pants decompositions, Serre bonté --, and the arithmetic of operads -- in genus 0 via Friedlander étale topological type and prospaces.
