  • The advertized PhD position within the project Predictive Avatar Control and Feedback (PACOF) (joint with D. Dresscher and G. Englebienne) has been filled. See also the news article here.
  • My project (joint with Birgit Jacob) Evolution equations: Inputs and Stability has been accepted for funding by the DFG. We are glad to announce that the PhD position could alread be filled.

My research interests lie in (functional) analysis; in particular operator theory (semigroups, functional calculus & its applications) and the interplay with partial differential equations in infinite dimensional systems theory.
