I am currently a visiting scholar at the Georgia Institute of Technology hosted by Andrzej Święch. Previously, I completed my PhD at Technische Universität Berlin and the Berlin Mathematical School. My supervisor was Wilhelm Stannat. My research is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) via grant CRC 910.

These are some books that speak to me as a mathematician and have informed the way I think about my career.
- Timothy Gowers, June Barrow-Green, and Imre Leader (eds.): Princeton Companion to Mathematics. Contains introductions to (almost) all areas of modern pure mathematics. Great to broaden the mathematical horizon.
- Paul R. Halmos: I Want to be a Mathematician (freely available). Paints a good picture of what it’s like to be a professional mathematician in the US: Starting from high school, going through undergrad, grad school, postdoc, all ranks of professor and a department chair.
- Allison K Henrich, Emille D. Lawrence, Matthew A. Pons, and David G. Taylor (eds.): Living Proof (freely available). Tells the stories of 41 mathematicians and how they got to where they are now, highlighting obstacles they had to overcome on their journeys.
