I am an assistant professor in Dieter Lüst's group at LMU Munich working on theoretical and phenomenological aspects of massive spin-2 fields. In particular, I am interested in a nonlinear field theory called ghost-free bimetric theory, as well as its implications for cosmology.

Before coming to Munich in October 2016, I was a postdoc at ETH Zurich in the group of Niklas Beisert.

I finished my PhD under the supervision of Fawad Hassan in December 2013 at Stockholm University. My thesis title is "Classically Consistent Theories of Interacting Spin-2 Fields".

In 2010 I received my diploma degree from the University of Heidelberg in Germany. My thesis, titled "RIDE across the Universe", analyzes quantum effects during inflation and suggests a possible connection to the dark energy problem.

Besides gravitation and cosmology I am also interested in theoretical particle physics and string theory.
