Since October 2014 I am a Professor in the Mathematical Institute at the University of Cologne.


Research Interests :


I am interested in studying the topological invariants of an almost complex or symplectic manifold with symmetries, namely, the equivariant cohomology, K-theory ring and Chern classes when the manifold is acted on by a Lie group. Recently I have also worked

on reflexive polytopes, elliptic genera and semi-toric systems.

NEWS: The DFG has approved the renewal of the


Collaborative Research Center CRC/TRR 191

"Symplectic structures in geometry, algebra and dynamics"

Short CV 


From September 2013 until August 2014, I was a Post-Doctoral researcher at the 

Centro de Análise Matemática, Geometria e Sistemas Dinâmicos, Instituto Superior Técnico (Lisbon), with a grant from the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia,

working with Prof. Leonor Godinho.


From September 2009 until August 2013, I was an assistant professor

(collaboratrice scientifique) in the Department of Mathematics

at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, working with Prof. Tudor Ratiu in the Chair of Geometric Analysis, .


I obtained my Ph.D. in Mathematics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology 

in June 2009. My Ph.D. advisor was Prof. Victor Guillemin
