I completed my PhD at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 2017, since then I was a postdoc at the TU Wien, a Newton International Fellow at the University of East Anglia, and a UKRI Future Leaders Fellow at the University East Anglia.

Research interests

I have a deep interest in set theory and specifically the axiom of choice, its interactions with large cardinal axioms, and with the rest of mathematics. I am also interested in different foundations of mathematics.
