me_webpageI was born and grew up in Heidenheim/Brenz in the centre-south of Germany on the Swabian Jura, one of the local low mountain ranges. It is known for its interesting geology, its abundance of fossils and its prehistoric culture. The oldest representation of the human body, the oldest musical instrument and the upper paleolithic (35-40ka) lion man were all found in this area.

I did my undergraduate studies at the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg, followed by a PhD in theoretical physics and soft condensed matter at the University of Konstanz.

Between 2007 and 2010 I lived in Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, whose Old and New Town are listed UNESCO world heritage. I worked as Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh.

From 2010 until 2012 I was Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Computational Science, University College London.

In 2012 I went back to Edinburgh and joined the  Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre as Computational Scientist, Advanced NAIS Fellow and EPSRC Research Software Engineer Fellow.

Since 2017 I continue my EPSRC RSE Fellowship at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow as Lecturer and Chancellor’s Fellow.
