My research interests lie in interpreting abstract mathematical concepts in visual language. Mathematical structures generate my narrations and visual storytelling. I have been working in the field of algebraic topology, didactics of mathemathics and studied art and illustration.

A drop of sea water observed under the lens of a microscope appears populated by millions of microorganisms. They move, spin, eat, split and swim.
If we look with mathematical lenses we see objects with shapes and structures. Some lenses show us more details, zooming into the differences, while other lenses zoom out. Some details get confused but similarities appear. Like organisms in the deep see, topological shapes move and spin, they are malleable and change shapes. Just like organisms they can be studied and classified.
