About me

I am Akademischer Rat auf Zeit at the Mathematisches Institut, Universität Heidelberg, in Germany. I'm in the research group Differential Geometry, led by Anna Wienhard.

I am Principal Investigator of the DFG RTG 2229 Asymptotic Invariants and Limits of Groups and Spaces, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and Universität Heidelberg.

I am Project Leader of the DFG Priority Programme Geometry at Infinity.

I am part of the NSF RNMS GEAR Network.
