Hi! I am a postdoctoral researcher in mathematics at Paderborn University in the group discrete mathematics of Kai-Uwe Schmidt. I earned my doctorate from Paderborn University under the supervision of Kai-Uwe Schmidt.

Previously, I obtained my bachelor’s and master’s degree in Mathematics (both with a minor in Physics) at Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, Germany. During my master’s studies, I was an exchange student at NTNU Trondheim, Norway.

My main research lies within algebraic combinatorics. In particular, I study problems connected to coding theory and design theory. I am especially interested in codes and designs as subsets of association schemes and using methods from optimization theory to solve questions arising in combinatorics and related fields such as finite geometry.

Furthermore, I am passionate about promoting inclusivity and diversity in the academic community.


Jun 23: The paper Existence of small ordered orthogonal arrays was published in Journal of Combinatorial Designs.

Mar 23: The paper Packings and Steiner systems in polar spaces was published in Combinatorial Theory.

Feb 23: I defended my PhD thesis at Paderborn University.
