Current Position

I am currently a PhD student in the Logic Group at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Hamburg. My PhD project is supervised by Prof. Dr. Benedikt Löwe. The topic of my thesis are modal logics of set theoretic model constructions.

Research Interests

My research interests lie in descriptive set theory and second order set theory. In my PhD project I am going to do research on the latter with a special focus on modal logics of set theoretic model constructions, like (various variants of) set forcing, ground models, inner models, class forcing, etc.

Academic CV

In 2011 I obtained a B.Sc. degree in mathematics and in 2012 a B.Sc. degree in physics at the University of Hamburg. In 2014 I graduated with a M.Sc. degree from the Graduate Programme in Logic at the University of Amsterdam.
