Short CV

I have studied Mathematics and Physics at the Bergische Universität Wuppertal from 2008 to 2013. My master-specialization focused on analytically solvable quantum many-particle systems (e.g. models for magnetism or granular matter). In 2014 I touched my current field of research, computational life science, for the first time while working at Bayer in Leverkusen. Thus, in 2015 I started a PhD at the Institute of Computational Biology at Helmholtz Zentrum München. I am funded by Bayer and frequently traveling between Leverkusen and Munich.

  • Parameter estimation for Ordinary Differential Equation (ODE) models   
  • Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithms
  • Cardiovascular systems
  • Data analysis
  • Contributing to the Parmeter EStimation TOolbox (PESTO)
