About me.

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the CRC 1114: Scaling Cascades in Complex Systems, working in the research group Numerical Analysis at the University of Potsdam led by Prof. Sebastian Reich. I am also associated to the CRC 1294: Data Assimilation.

My research interests lie at the interface of computational statistics, machine learning, and the mathematics of stochastic dynamics and interacting particle systems.
