I am a mathematician and computer scientist working at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences of New York University. I am a Simons Junior Fellow in the Simons Society of Fellows. From 2018 to 2020 I was a member in the School of Mathematics at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton.
Until 2018 I worked at CWI, the national research institute for mathematics and computer science in the Netherlands. I received my PhD cum laude from the University of Amsterdam in October 2018.CV Google Scholar ORCID dblp

My work broadly speaking focuses on algebraic complexity theory, quantum information theory and discrete mathematics. Studying the interaction between asymptotics, symmetry and approximation, I am for example interested in fast matrix multiplication, Shannon capacity and the algebraic version of the P versus NP problem, and I use methods from diverse fields, including representation theory, algebraic geometry, information theory, optimization and real semi-algebraic geometry.
