I am an assistant professor at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. I am also affiliated with CWI, and am currently supported by a VENI fellowship of the NWO (the Dutch Organization for Scientific Research).
Before this, I spent three years an Applied Mathematics Instructor at MIT, under the mentorship of Michel Goemans. I was a PhD student in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at McGill University, in Montreal, Canada, advised by Bruce Shepherd and Adrian Vetta. My undergraduate education was at the University of Cape Town, South Africa.
