I am a PhD student on Evolutionary Systems Biology in the Department of Evolutionary Biology and Environmental Studies at the University of Zurich working in the laboratory of Andreas Wagner. I am also affiliated with the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics. My main research interests are the evolution of biological systems and the fundamental organizational principles of life. I am a passionate reader of science fiction and history.

My current research focuses on characterizing empirical adaptive landscapes and genotype-phenotype maps, the role of molecular chaperones in evolution, and the metabolic determinants of enzyme evolution.
