I am an 18 years old PhD student at the Institute of Mathematics of the University of Zürich (I-MATH) within the Zürich Graduate School in Mathematics. My doctoral advisor is Prof. Dr. Ashkan Nikeghbali, who has a chair in Financial Mathematics at I-MATH.

About me (brief)

  • I finished the final high school exams ("Matura") in mathematics at the age of 9 years at the Gymnasium Immensee.
  • My Master's degree at the University of Zürich was obtained under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Camillo De Lellis.
  • In parallel to my doctoral studies in Zürich, I am also doing a Master's in Calcul Haute Performance at the University of Perpignan in the South of France.

Vita

Zürich, Switzerland

I finished my final high school exams in mathematics ("Matura") at the age of 9 years at the Gymnasium Immensee.

The dean of the Faculty of Science of the University of Zürich at the time was Prof. Dr. Michael Hengartner. He and the formerly director of the Institute of mathematics, Prof. Dr. Thomas Kappeler, initiated a special study programme for me within the Junior Euler Society (named after the great Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler).

The study programme was led by the Italian mathematician Prof. Dr. Camillo De Lellis, who later became the advisor of my master's thesis.

In the summer of 2018, I finished all high school exams at the age of 15 and got matriculated as a regular student in mathematics at the University of Zürich.

I finished my Bachelor's in mathematics at the University of Zürich in August of 2020.

My Master's thesis at the University of Zürich was written under the supervision of De Lellis. The topic was non-uniqueness of weak solutions to the vorticity formulation of the Euler equations.

My thesis is an elaboration of this publication, written by Dallas Albritton, Elia Brué, Maria Colombo, Camillo De Lellis, Vikram Giri, Hyunju Kwon and myself.

Starting December 2021, I am a PhD student at the University of Zürich under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Ashkan Nikeghbali.

Perpignan, France

In September 2015, I was accepted by the french University of Perpignan into the second year of mathematics. (A regular matriculation in Switzerland was not possible at the time for legal reasons.) I followed all of their mathematics courses and obtained my Licence (frencch equivalent of the Bachelor) in the beginning of 2020.

I will finish my Master's in Calcul Haute Performance at the University of Perpignan presumably at the end of 2022.

Forschung

My main interests within mathematics are probability theory (in particular with respect to theoretical machine learning) and partial differential equations (in particular with respect to fluid dynamics).
