Short Biography

I did my Bachelor in  Energy- and Environmental Engineering at Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH). My Bachelor’s thesis was a Life-cycle assessment (LCA) on ethanol fuel production from sugarcane, sweet sorghum and Jerusalem artichoke for the application in Germany.

After my undergraduate studies, I became a lateral entry student in physics at the University of Hamburg (UHH). During my Master my main areas of study were Theoretical Particle Physics and Theoretical Laser Physics and Photonics
My master's thesis was titled "The Spin of Dirac Field". It was about anomalies concerning the spin of an electron, which arsise when the Dirac equation is considered in first quantization.

Back to engineering again, I am currently working on optimizing an electric grid with respect to cost a function.

Research Interests

  • Everything related to programming
  • The Dirac Equation and the Schroedinger Equation (Quantum Mechanics)
  • The Spin of Elementary Particles
