Research Interests

My main interest is the dimension theory of sets and measures arising from stochastic processes and symbolic dynamical systems. I study their interplay with fractal geometry, number theory, and geometric measure theory. Currently, I am studying continuum tree spaces and their relationship to analytical properties and embedding problems of random metric spaces such as the Brownian continuum random tree and Brownian map. I investigate small scale behaviour of sets and measures in connection to the notions of Assouad dimensions.


Funding Information

From September 2022 to August 2024 my research is funded by the Horizons Europe Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship “Dimension and Dynamics”. See the European Commission page for more details of the scheme.

From June 2020 to July 2022 my research was funded by the Senior Lise Meitner Fellowship M-2813 from the FWF (Austrian Research Fund).
