Biography 

From October 2008 until February 2014 I studied technical mathematics at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) with experimental physics as minor subject.   My diploma thesis was about "Modellierung und Numerische Simulation der Ausbreitung von Waldbränden". 

Since April 2014 I've been working as research associate at EMCL at University of Heidelberg.
