About me

I’m a mathematician working in applied topos theory. I obtained my PhD in October 2017 under the supervision of Marc Nieper-Wißkirchen at the University of Augsburg. Besides research, I love teaching mathematics at all levels and am passionate about doing mathematics with school students. I’m working at the Università di Verona under the supervision of Peter Schuster. In the winter term 2017/2018, I was substituting a junior professor at the University of Augsburg, and during the summer of 2018, I was a guest at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences in Leipzig.

I explore applications of the internal language of toposes, particularly in commutative algebra and in algebraic geometry.

I contribute to the nLab and to the Stacks Project.

Recent result by Matthias Hutzler: The infinitesimal topos classifies the theory of quotients of local algebras by nilpotent ideals.
