I obtained my Ph.D. in October 2017 under the supervision of S. Müller at the University of Bonn. Currently, I am a Research Fellow as part of the research group SINGULARITY led by Filip Rindler.

Teaching Responsibilities 2019/20:
Term 2: MA3G1 Theory of PDEs

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
  • Rigidity and fine properties of PDE constrained structures
  • Regularity theory of elliptic PDE's
  • Convex Analysis and Harmonic Analysis methods for variational problems

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