Welcome to my homepage!
Since April 2018, I am a Junior Professor in the symplectic workgroup at Heidelberg University.
My research focuses on Hamiltonian dynamical systems and, in particular, on the existence of periodic orbits. The tools I use in my study come from the interplay of differential geometry, topology and the calculus of variation. As an example, I look at the motion of a charged particle in a magnetic field.
I am happy to supervise students for Bachelor and Master theses in English or German. If you are interested feel free to contact me and take a look at the following list of possible topics.
A couple of ways you can reach me:
Office hours: Mo 16-17:30 Uhr. We meet in my office or on heiCONF: heiconf.uni-heidelberg.de/ben-ynd-94t.
Address: Room 3/402, Mathematisches Institut, Im Neueheimer Feld 205, 69120 Heidelberg, Germany
