I am a Professor (Hoogleraar) at the Departments of Mathematics and Computer Science at KU Leuven. Prior to joining KU Leuven, I was a tenured BOFZAP Professor (Hoogleraar) at Ghent University, and before that, a Reader at the University of Bristol and an EPSRC Early Career Fellow. Since 2018, I have been an EPSRC Full College Member and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy

My research is currently supported by the FWO (Flanders Research Foundation) and KU Leuven iBOF grant. Previously, it was partially supported by U. Ghent's BOF professorship, the UK EPSRC, and the London Mathematical Society (LMS).

My research lies in Applied Algebraic Geometry. In particular, I am interested in developing computational tools to study problems in statistics and probability theory, theoretical computer science, mathematical optimization, and quantum physics. On the theoretical side, I work on toric degenerations, combinatorial divisor theory, matroid and determinantal varieties, tensors, conditional probabilities, graphical models, and system reliability theory.
