Major / recent publications:
My research interest mainly lies in the field of geometric group theory, which studies groups by their actions on metric spaces. I have done some work on acylindrically hyperbolic groups, which vastly generalize the notion of fundamental groups of closed hyperbolic manifolds.

Besides geometric group theory, I am also interested in discrete geometry. In the following collaborated work, we prove a six-neighbor theorem for planar normal tilings.
