About me:
I am an assistant professor in Mathematics at the University of Hamburg. Before I moved to Hamburg, I was a postdoc at the University of Regensburg. I obtained my PhD degree in Mathematics at the University of Potsdam under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Christian Bär, funded by the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics. Previously, I did my diploma studies in Mathematics at the University of Vienna.
In the summer term 2020, I am on leave. I am a substitute professor at the University of Tübingen.
My research interests revolve around differential geometry, geometric analysis, partial differential equations and general relativity. More precisely, I am interested in special geometric structures (Einstein metrics and Ricci solitons), their stability and the structure of their moduli spaces. Moreover, I am interested in geometric flows (in particular Ricci flow) and nonlinear stability problems in general relativity.
