Academic life and Current position:

I finished my PhD thesis in December 2018 under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Harald Garcke.

Between January 2019 and September 2019 I was a Postdoc in the group of Prof. Dr. Harald Garcke.

Since October 2019 I am a Postdoc in the group of Prof. Paola Pozzi, PhD.

From April 2022 to October 2022 I am a visiting researcher of Prof. Yoshikazu Giga at the University of Tokyo.

The stay is financed by a DFG research scholarship, cf. https://gepris.dfg.de/gepris/projekt/442279986.

Research interests: 

Partial Differential Equations, Geometric Evolution Equations (especially Surface Diffusion, Mean Curvature

and Willmore Flow), Stochastic Differential Equations
