Ph.D./Dr. rer. nat.
Experienced mathematician and educator specializing in numerical linear algebra and high-performance computing
In January 2022, I will be joining the Birkhäuser division at Springer Nature as a full-time Associate Editor. I'm looking forward to blending my past experience as an academic researcher with my passions for making scientific research more accessible and for supporting ambitious authors with their big ideas.
Throughout 2021, I looked for work in Zürich while studying German intensively and working sparsely as a private tutor. I was rejected from at least 30 different positions, in industry and academia. Being unemployed for a year during the COVID pandemic in a foreign country was not easy! I've compiled some resources that helped me cope during this time.
My doctorate was jointly awarded in 2018 by Temple University and the Bergische Universität Wuppertal for my thesis A New Block Krylov Subspace Framework with Applications to Functions of Matrices Acting on Multiple Vectors. I was supervised by Daniel B. Szyld and Andreas Frommer.
I have a bachelors degree in Spanish and volunteered as an English teacher for Puentes de Salud in Philadelphia. In addition to Spanish, I speak German, French, Bulgarian, and a few other languages to varying degrees. Check out my hobbies page for my favorite language-learning resources.
