I am a mathematician working as a postdoc in the Frazzoli group in the Institute for Dynamic Systems and Control at ETH Zurich.

I am interested in applied category theory, a general-purpose mathematics of interconnection, composition, relation and translation. Currently I am involved in projects in engineering, specifically complex systems design using co-design. I have done past work in category theory, representation theory, and symplectic & Poisson geometry.
