20211006  The project application Marginally outer trapped tubes of Walter Simon, where I am a coapplicant was selected for funding by FWF.  
20210831  I will be on sabbatical in the fall term 2021/22 and exclusively concentrate on research. In particular, I will not supervise any additional B.Sc and B.Ed theses.  
20210710  I am coorganizing the small 2021 Null Distance Workshop with Cristina Sormani to take place online on July 19.  
20210701  The talks and slides of the onlinemeeting SCRI21: Singularity theorems, causality, and all that (A tribute to Roger Penrose) which was held June 1418, 2021, and which I was coorganizing are now available from the conference website under https://sites.google.com/unifi.it/scri21/program.  
20210410  The talks of the 10th International Meeting on Lorentzian Geometry GeLoCor, where I was a member of the scientific commitee are now available on a Youtube channel.  
20210201  My FWFfunded research project Nonsmooth spacetime geometry has started today. There are two new Ph.D. students employed in the project: Matteo Calisti and Felix Rott.  
20210125  The ESIworkshop Nonregular Spacetime Geometry which I was coorganising unfortunately had to be cancelled due to the pandemic. We plan to reapply to ESI for a new workshop in 2022/23.  
20191017  My Ph.D. student Benedict Schinnerl was awarded a Uni:Docs scholarship.  
20190320  Jiri Podolsky, a theoretical physicist from Charles University at Prague (and a frequent collaborator of mine) has written a background story on his research for CQG+. It is entiteled Understanding exact spacetimes and also briefly describes our joint project(s).  
Fall 2018 

I am a mathematician/mathematical physicist and a researcher in mathematics education at the Faculty of Mathematics at the University of Vienna.
I am a member of the research group DiANA
(Differential Algebras and Nonlinear Analysis) in the Analysis, Geometric Structures and Mathematical Physics section of the department.
My research interests include:

Also I am member and treasurer of the IAGF (The International Association for Generalized Functions), a lifetime member of ISAAC (The International Society for Analysis, its Applications and Computation), and a member of GDM (The German Society of Didactics of Mathematics).
My teaching includes a variety of courses in several areas of mathematics reaching from general firstyearcourses to specialized courses and seminars in analysis, PDE and geometry, as well as major courses in the teacher’s training programme
I am a supervisor both in the
I have coauthored the general introductory book Einführung in das Mathematische Arbeiten (German,Introduction into mathematical methodology) with Hermann Schichl. Together we are running a service web page accompanying the book. We have been awarded the UNIVIE Teaching Award 2013 of Vienna University and the Ars Docendi 2016, the Austrian National Award in University Teaching.
