Educational and Professional Experiences

In August 2012 I received my diploma in mathematics from Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Universität Hannover. I did my diploma thesis in the title "Numerische Berechnung genetischer Rekombinationswahrscheinlichkeiten" in the Algorithmic Optimization group of Marc Steinbach.
Currently I am a PhD student in Ellen Baake's Biomathematics workgroup. In addition to my research and teaching tasks I am the computing officer of the workgroup and act as coordination support for the priority program Probabilistic Structures in Evolution. In particular I am responsible for the construction and maintenance of its webservices.

Current Interests

For my PhD I work in the area of population genetics, in particular on models that deal with recombination dynamics. I am using a combination of methods from numerical mathematics and probability theory for the estimation of model-parameters. Furthermore, I am contributing simulation studies to the search for an evolution model that captures the essentials of the Lenski experiment's design.
