In September 2020, I started as a PhD candidate at the Mathematical Institute at Leiden University.
My supervisor is dr. Jan Vonk and I primarily study number theory.
In particular, my research concerns p-adic CM-theory using theta functions, Shimura curves,
Galois deformations, p-adic modular forms, and generalisations of the work by Gross and Zagier
on the factorisations of differences between singular moduli.
My CV can be found here.

I have been a teaching assistant at both the University of Amsterdam and at Leiden University for bachelor and master level mathematics courses, which includes teaching exercise classes and grading hand-in assignments. I am also actively organising an IMC-training in Leiden, preparing students for this International Mathematics Competition for university students.


I enjoy coming up with mathematical problems; either recreationally, or as intended to be used for mathematics olympiads. As part of the editorial board (since 2019) of the Dutch mathematics magazine "Pythagoras" (info), I control the bi-monthly challenge problem section. My problems have been featured in all rounds of the Dutch Mathematics Olympiad (NWO) and on various bachelor-level and master-level exams, both oral and written. Finally, some of my proposals have been featured at the IMC (info), a large International Mathematics Competition for university students.
