I was born and raised in Munich, Germany. After graduating from high school I studied Mathematics at the Technische Universität Munich, Germany, École Polytechnique Paris, France, and the University of Oxford, UK, where I read for the MSc in Mathematics. Subsequently I worked for two years at McKinsey & Company as a management consultant. I completed my DPhil at the University of Oxford in Mathematics under the supervision of Peyton Young and Pierre Tarrès. Currently I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Computational Social Science group at ETH Zurich.
