I am a visiting fellow in the Department of Mathematics of the London School of Economics and Political Science working with Peter Allen, Julia Böttcher, and Jozef Skokan. My research is funded by a fellowship of the German Research Foundation (DFG, Grant PA 3513/1-1). Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher at TU Ilmenau. I obtained my Ph.D. at Goethe University Frankfurt am Main, where my Supervisor was Yury Person. I got my Bachelors’s and Master’s degree at FU Berlin with Tibor Szabó.

Research Interests

My research interests are probabilistic and extremal combinatorics, Ramsey theory, and graph limit theory. I am mostly working on embedding type problems for graphs and usually they involve randomness in one way or the other.
