I'm a PhD student at University of Vienna in Sara Merino-Aceituno's research group Mathematics of Emergence in natural Domains. I studied mathematics at TU Kaiserslautern with stays at TU Delft and The University of Auckland. Next year, I will start as a program-specific researcher at the Kyoto University Institute for Advanced Study of Human Biology in Seirin-Lee's lab.
With my research, I want to answer questions in biology using mathematical tools. I have worked on mechanical models in developmental biology (epithelial-to-mesenchymal transitions), muscle dynamics, molecular dynamics and phage-bacterial interactions.
My mathematical toolset includes mathematical modelling with ordinary, stochastic and partial differential equations. An emphasis lies on constrained systems such as differential inclusions and differential-algebraic equations. My key experties is the implementation of efficient numerical simulations for such models and the development of models in collaboration with biologists.
