## About me

I am a Ph.D student at Heidelberg university in the Research Station Geometry & Dynamics supervised by Anja Randecker.

My position is funded by the DFG priority program SPP 2026 "Geometry at infinity". I am a associated member of RTG 2229 "Asymptotic Invariants and Limits of Groups and Spaces".

Beforehand I studied Mathematics with a little bit of Physics at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. In 2020 I wrote there my Master Thesis "Densest Sphere Packings" under the supervision of Stefan Kühnlein.

I am interested in number theory and geometry, especially translation surfaces. I am also involved in the Heidelberg Experimental Geometry Lab (HEGL).

## Translation surfaces

Finite translation surfaces arise in a lot of different context, like in billiards, Teichmüller theory, algebraic geometry and many other fields.

There are at least three common ways to define translations surfaces. As a tuple of a 2-dimensional Manifold with a translation atlas or as a tuple of a compact Riemann surface and a holomorphic 1-form or the easiest one to visualize: As a collection of finitely many polygons in the plane, such that every edge of every polygon can be identified with a parallel edge of the same length so that we obtain a connected, orientable surface.

My research is concerned with the limit processes of these objects, I am especially interested in the convergence behaviour of possible invariants.
