I'm a postdoc in the Insitute of Scientific Computing at the Technische Universität Dresden. End of 2015 I have finished my PhD about “Efficient Solvers for the Phase-Field Crystal Equation” supervised by Prof. Axel Voigt (TU-Dresden) and additionally reviewed by Prof. Steven M. Wise (The University of Tennessee).
Currently, I'm working on topics about Discrete Exterior Calculus, the Phase-Field Crystal equation, active matter and the evolution of surface vector fields. See also Selected Projects.
