I did my Ph.D. under the supervision of S. Müller at the University of Bonn. Currently I am a Research Fellow in the University of Warwick as part of the research group SINGULARITY from Filip Rindler.

Areas of specialization

  • Calculus of Variations
  • Geometric Measure Theory
  • Regularity theory of Minimal Surfaces and their generalizations
  • Classical and stochastic homogenization theory

Research interests

During my short career I have developed a great interest for these topics:

  • Lower semicontinuity of integral functionals and quasiconvexity
  • Rigidty properties of PDE constrained structures
  • Regularity theory of elliptic PDE's and stochastic elliptic PDE's
  • Convex Analysis methods for variational problems

I am also very interested in learning optimal transport, convex integration techniques, and Riemannian geometry.

NOTE: Soon I will start a reading group about on the paper 'High-dimensionality and h-principle' (PDE Bulletin AMS 2017) by L. Székelyhidi & C. De Lellis. If you are interested to join please get in contact by e-mail.
