I am a member of the research group Applied Mathematics and Modeling where I am currently working on my PhD thesis supervised by Ulisse Stefanelli. I am employed in the special research program Taming Complexity in Partial Differential Systems (project part Multiphysics Effects in Solids) and associated to the doctoral program Dissipation and Dispersion in Nonlinear PDEs.
I am also teaching at the University of Applied Sciences Technikum Wien.
