Personal details


I am a reader in Mathematics. I obtained my Diplom and PhD on topics in geometry at TU Berlin. Before joining the University of Leicester in 2007, I hold research positions at TU Berlin, the University of Massachusetts in Amherst and the University of Augsburg where I was awarded my habilitation. My research expertise is in surface theory, integrable systems and visualisation. As well as leading an international network team working on minimal surfaces, which is funded by the Leverhulme Trust, I currently also work on applications of surface theory in engineering and surface theory.

  •  PhD, TU Berlin
  • Habilitation, University of Augsburg

I am currently Head of Student support (this includes organisation of houses), member of DMG, LTC, CAC, appeals panels, convenor of SSC and co-director of the VisLab. Elsewhere, I'm the webmaster of EWM, and as such member of the standing panel of EWM, and member of the Scientific Committeee for the international conference PADGE 2017 in Leuven. I was member of the ITLR 2017 panel of the Department of Mathematics, University of Warwick, and I organised the IWD 2017 event of the Department of Mathematics at the University of Leicester.

Recent grant

I have been awarded an international network grant  Minimal surface: integrable systems and visualisation by The Leverhulme Trust.
