**Research Profile:**

My research interests focus on free probability theory and random matrices; but include also, more generally, mathematical physics, operator algebras, and probability theory.

A while ago I have moved to a position at Saarland University in Germany. But I still continue to work together with Jamie Mingo and would love to co-supervise students who show some interest in free probability and in Germany.
