I am a junior group leader (SNF Ambizione fellow) in the Institute of Integrative Biology at ETH Zurich. I was previously a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, and before that I did my Ph.D. at Rutgers University in the Department of Physics and Astronomy and Center for Quantitative Biology (formerly the BioMaPS Institute for Quantitative Biology).

My research interests broadly span physical and quantitative biology, but with a focus on evolution, the defining feature of living matter. I develop mathematical models and computational tools, borrowing especially from statistical physics, to understand the fundamental processes of evolution. I also perform quantitative experiments on bacteria to test these models. Please explore the links above to read more about my research interests, current group, and other activities.
