I am an associate professor in Mathematics at KTH Stockholm and part of the research group in Differential Geometry and General Relativity. Before I moved to Stockholm, I was an assistant professor at the University of Hamburg, on leave in summer term 2020 and winter term 2020/21 when I was a visiting professor at the University of Tübingen. Prior to that, I was a postdoc at the University of Regensburg. I obtained my PhD degree in Mathematics at the University of Potsdam under the supervision of Christian Bär, funded by the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics. Previously, I did my diploma studies in Mathematics at the University of Vienna.
My research interests revolve around differential geometry, geometric analysis, partial differential equations and general relativity. More precisely, I am interested in special geometric structures (Einstein metrics and Ricci solitons), their stability and the structure of their moduli spaces. Moreover, I am interested in geometric flows (in particular Ricci flow) and nonlinear stability problems in general relativity.
