I am a member of S.Schwarzacher's research group on fluid structure interaction.

I am temporarily (Summer semester 2024) working as a substitute professor at the University of Leipzig.

Selected research interests (In no particular order)

Fluid structure interaction

Variational aspects, interplay of Eulerian and Lagrangian viewpoints, relaxed solutions

Calculus of Variations

(Vertical) relaxation methods, generalised solutions, Cartesian currents, Young-measures, minimizing movements and related methods

Partial differential equations

Topological invariants, topological solitons, bubbling phenomena, gradient flows and other evolution equations

Geometric measure theory

Currents on manifolds, transport of currents, generalised surfaces, applications to variational problems, differential geometric aspects
