Hi! I am currently a substitute professor for Geometry at Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg. Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher in discrete mathematics at Paderborn University, working in the collaborative research center Integral Structures in Geometry and Representation Theory (which is funded by the DFG—German Research Foundation). I earned my doctorate from Paderborn University under the supervision of Kai-Uwe Schmidt.

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 research focuses on combinatorics, particularly on combinatorial problems related to finite geometry, coding theory, and design theory. I am especially interested in codes and designs as subsets of association schemes, and I like to use methods from optimization theory to address questions arising in combinatorics and related fields such as finite geometry.

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