Welcome to my Webpage at KIT!

In January 2018 I started as a Junior Research Group Leader funded by the Klaus-Tschira Stiftung. My research is concerned with nonlinear partial differential equations. More information can be found on the website of my research group Singularity formation in nonlinear PDEs. Most of my publications listed below are available on arXiv.
