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 intriguing geology, its abundance of Jurassic fossils (200-150Ma) and its prehistoric culture. In this area some of the oldest representations of the human body, musical instruments and the mysterious, upper paleolithic (35-40ka) lion man were found. In 2017 the caves and ice age art of the Swabian Jura were awarded UNESCO World Heritage status.

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 and 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, NAIS Fellow and EPSRC Research Software Engineer Fellow.

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