I am a researcher in the interdisciplinary field of mathematics and molecular biology. Currently I work as a postdoctoral researcher with Prof. Alex Mogilner at the Courant Institute at the New York University. I have completed my Phd at the University of Vienna in the group of Prof. Christian Schmeiser.

Scientific Interests
The interplay between mathematics and biology has always interested me. I believe that using good mathematical models we can capture, describe and eventually better understand biological phenomena.

Biologically I am interested in
  • Cell migration, e.g. keratocyte movement
  • Muscle development, in particular with regards to myonuclear movement and size control
  • The cytoskeleton, particularly actin networks and the interplay with accessory molecules like myosin or cofilin
  • Collective motion and pattern formation in e.g. myxobacteria
 Mathematically I am interested in
  • Kinetic transport equations
  • Non-linear PDEs and ODEs
  • The Micro-Macro passage from particle-based to macroscopic models
  • Boltzmann type equations
  • Numerical simulations (FE-Method)
More details on my current and past projects can be found on my research page.
