Research interests:

My research concerns mathematical problems arising in General Relativity. I am especially interested in singular initial value problems for wave equations on Lorentzian manifolds. These problems arise naturally in connection to Penrose's strong cosmic censorship conjecture. One example is the characteristic Cauchy problem, where initial data are prescribed on a lightlike hypersurface (like for example a Cauchy horizon).

About me:

I am currently a post doc researcher in mathematics at the University of Hamburg. In March 2018, I received my PhD at Potsdam University under the supervision of Prof. Christian Bär. I did my undergraduate studies in Stockholm at KTH (Royal Institute of Technology) with exchange studies at ETH in Zurich and TUM/LMU in Munich.
