Mathematician and computer scientist working as an assistant professor at the Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics of the University of Amsterdam.

From 2020 to 2021 I was a Simons Junior Fellow at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences of New York University, hosted by Oded Regev. From 2018 to 2020 I was a member in the School of Mathematics at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, hosted by Avi Wigderson. Until 2018 I worked at CWI, the national research institute for mathematics and computer science in the Netherlands.

My research is on various topics in computational complexity theory, quantum information theory and discrete mathematics. A unifying theme in my work is the interaction between amortization, symmetry and approximation.
